2. add canned diced tomatoes and sauce start the sauce to simmer.
3. add dried Italian herbs ( use fresh oregano and basil if you can afford it and add to taste)

    Thank you for the fed back. I made this start of a recipe for myself but haven't used it yet. I have store bought still. I am in my first week of SparkPeople and learning as I go. Must be doing something right I woke up STARVING and ate breakfast and still feel hungry. Drinking water.
