Now that the girls are grown and are not always around for dinner I enjoy making a small amount of quick sauce using canned plain tomato sauce. Just enough for hub and I.

A couple times a year I make a large batch of from scratch sauce with canned crushed tomatoes (I put them through the food mill to be sure any skins etc are removed, plus my tummy likes smooth sauce lately), paste, wine, onions, garlic and fresh herbs. Then summer meatballs and beef braciole in it. This gets portioned and frozen for quick meals.

Canned tomatoes for me. Usually buy the whole, or diced. If I want a smooth sauce, I use my hand blender to finish it off.

Canned here also. Although, a lot of the canned toms I buy have a basil leaf or two in them.

Once or twice I've bought Hunt's canned tomato sauce, and it needed almost as much doctoring a a can of just tomatoes.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things
