Homemade Tomato Sauce

Emily Richards, P.H.Ec., share with Canada Beef her recipe for Homemade Tomato Sauce. This is as close to her mom and Nonna's sauce that she could get. Using homemade canned tomatoes makes a difference but many people don't get a chance to can their own tomatoes. Emily wanted to offer her readers a recipe for a tomato sauce using store-bought canned tomatoes that was easy to make and still tasted great.
