Start with a large can of crushed tomatoes. Pour into a saucepan and add seasonings. I never measure these; I just shake the container a couple of times. Each is likely 2 tsp or so. However, I do add a little less of the chili powder and more of the garlic powder (2-3 times - self-proclaimed garlic lover here). The italian seasoning could also handle more. Blend well over med-low heat.
Add about 2 TBSP of brown sugar and mix until melted. I also like to add 1-2 tbsp of butter and I stir it in until melted. It just adds a little bit of ooomph! Add salt and pepper to taste.
Let the sauce sit for another 5 minutes or so to let the flavours blend, then taste it and adjust seasonings as desired.
Linking up with some great parties!
