    About how many cups does the recipe make? Thanks!

      Hi Laura! Good question. It yields about 6 cups. I like to double the recipe — since I’m buying a bunch of carrots and celery anyway. It freezes very well so you don’t have to worry about not using it.

    This looks lovely. I like smooth tomato sauces, without chunks. This looks like just the thing!

    I’m a poor college student, lacking a food processor. Is there any way to do that process (ha) without one? Thank you so much for the recipe, by the way. I’m taking on your lasagna recipe in September. :)

      Hi Sarah! Been there! :)

      Do you have a blender? If you do, you could blend it all together in batches (about 2 cups/batch).

      Good luck with the lasagna! I hope you enjoy it :)

    This was AMAZING. It complimented the Chicken Parmesan just perfectly. I am so glad I took the time to make it from scratch. Thank you again for your recipes – each one I make is so delicious! I always get compliments from my 6 year old, to my 8 year old, to my 31 year old husband!

    I absolutely love this recipe! The only thing I change is I add about a cup of red wine and reduce it down before adding the tomatoes. This adds that extra flavor I love in spaghetti sauce. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe!

      You’re very welcome. I think I’ll try your red wine addition next time for a nice depth of flavor :)

    Lacey, I have a question on the wonderful recipe. I see that it freezes well, what about canning it?
