I have to make another confession...I have always wanted to make homemade tomato sauce but I have been so scared I would mess it up. It is so easy to buy jarred tomato sauce that I kept putting off making it until today! I am so excited to share Gwyneth Paltrow's Go-To Tomato Sauce Recipe with everyone. The Go-To Tomato Sauce Recipe is found in her It's All Good cookbook.
