Only the Best Tomato Sauce Recipes
Amazing Chicken Tortilla Soup!
chicken, cayenne, chicken broth, chili powder, cumin, tomato, white wine, corn, garlic, green pepper, jalapeno, olive oil, onions, tomato sauce
This recipe has been a huge hit with everyone who has ever tried it. We make it almost weekly, and the leftovers are eaten immediately. It is also very healthy! It is a little spicy, so if you don't have too much of a tolerance for spicy foods, you may choose to leave out the seeds of the jalapeño. If you love spicy, like we do, extra cayenne pepper adds even more zing. Enjoy!
Baked Italian Meatballs
red pepper flakes, italian seasoning, parsley, garlic, breadcrumbs, ground beef, salt, mustard powder, parmesan cheese, tomato sauce
These are really tasty and I love that they are baked in the oven rather than pan-fried. I found this recipe in Cooking light originally and have made them several times with great success. They freeze well after cooking - I just thaw them and add them to simmering sauce for a great spaghetti dinner on busy nights.
Baked Stuffed Pasta Shells
black pepper, parsley, eggs, basil, garlic powder, pasta shells, mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, ricotta cheese, tomato sauce
These are just fantastic! This is one of DH's favorite things I make. Great for family dinner or pot luck. This is really pretty easy to make and true Italian comfort food!

Marinated Grilled Shrimp
"A very simple and easy marinade that makes your shrimp so yummy you don't even need cocktail sauce! Don't let the cayenne pepper scare you, you don't even taste it. My 2 and 4 year-olds love it and eat more shrimp than their parents!!! It is also a big hit with company, and easy to prepare. I make this with frozen or fresh shrimp and use my indoor electric grill if the weather is not good for outside grilling. Try it with a salad, baked potato, and garlic bread. You will not be disappointed!!!"
My Chicken Parmigiana
This is my husband's favorite meal and one I make for special occasions, such as birthday dinners. The cooking method of this particular version is different from the conventional chicken parmigiana recipes I always used to make. Once I tried this much easier and moister version, I never went back to the "old" method. I often use homemade sauce in this, but a good-quality bottled sauce, such as Classico or Barilla, is perfectly acceptable as well. I serve this chicken atop mounds of freshly cooked pasta with some additional heated sauce. I have often chosen to replace the mozzarella with thin slices of Provolone cheese. NOTE: Edited to add that pounding the chicken is not necessary with this method. Part of what we love about this recipe is that even the meatier pieces of chicken get so moist & tender as it braises in the sauce.
Pasta with Spicy Sun-Dried-Tomato Cream Sauce
"One night, I promised to make dinner for a blind date, andas usualI was running late," writes Hollander Finegold of Eugene, Oregon. "I had few...
pasta, ham, oregano, garlic powder, sausage, mozzarella cheese, onions, parmesan cheese, pepperoni, tomato sauce
This is similar to many Baked Pasta dishes but with the distinct flavors of pizza. I created this recipe yesterday and took it to a dinner party as the main dish. It was a big hit and every woman there asked for the recipe. I decided that anything that popular should be posted here. You do not have to use the same kind of pasta I did...but should use a pasta which will remain slightly firm after boiling and baking so that it is not mushy. NOTE** I've had several people ask about when to add the spices...you can either add them to the sauce or to the sausage when you cook it. Either way works great! Since this recipe is an original creation of mine, it tickles me so very much that lots of people are enjoying it! Thanks everyone!

"I do not like red sauce but pizza is one of my favorite foods. So I came up with this good alternative to traditional red sauce pizza. It still has a light tomato taste."

I'm in love with this soup!! A very good friend of mine made this for me recently and I fell in love. I'm very picky about my Tortilla Soup and this by far the best ever. She makes hers in the crock pot and I have to agree, that it's easy and tastes just wonderful!! Whatever you do, DO NOT skip the garnishes! They are the icing on the cake!
Tortellini Soup I
beef broth, carrot, basil, oregano, garlic, green pepper, sausage, onions, red wine, tomato, tomato sauce, cheese tortellini, water, zucchini

Ultimate Pizza Sauce
bay leaf, black pepper, butter, celery, basil, oregano, fennel seed, garlic, olive oil, onions, parmesan cheese, salt, sugar, tomato paste, tomato sauce
This recipe was given to me as a wedding present, written on the inside cover of a Pizza Cookbook. It is thick, saucy, spicy, and delicious. I'll never use anything else on my homemade pizzas. I like to double or triple it and but it in ziploc bags in my freezer.

This is the best salsa recipe I've found so far and I've tried about a dozen. I got it from one of the local hospital cookbooks that are sold in my area. I changed it a bit and have been canning it for years. The reason I plant a garden is for this salsa. We would be lost without it. Hope you like it as much as we do.
