It always seems like I don’t ever have enough tomatoes (no matter how many I plant) in my garden to make everything that I want to make, so a lot of times I will buy the # 10 sized cans of tomato sauce to use. I will recan the tomato sauce in to smaller jars and I will also use it in the canned spaghetti sauce that I can. It’s pretty easy and really good. I use it for spaghetti, pizza, raviolis, lasagna, and anywhere a need a red pasta sauce.
Start with 3 # 10 cans of tomato sauce.
Pour into a large pan.
Add all your spices and let simmer for several hours.
Let simmer several hours. It will reduce down a little. Remove the bay leaves and fill sterilized quart jars add hot lids and process in a water bath for 40 minutes ( be sure to adjust for altitude)
