    This is my tomato pasta sauce recipe that is sweet at the first bite and then fades to hot. You can use it as a base to which you can add vegetables.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1/2 tablespoon chilli flakes
    • 800g crushed tomatoes
    • 185g tomato paste
    • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
    • 3/4 cup (125g) brown sugar, divided

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. In a saucepan, combine olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and chilli flakes and lightly saute over high heat.
    2. Reduce heat to low and mix in tomatoes and tomato paste. Stir in celery salt, salt and pepper. Start with 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and mix into the sauce. Gradually add brown sugar, depending on acidity of tomatoes. First taste of sauce should be sweet.

    I have been making this sauce for over 1 year. This is a GREAT recipe for sauce - My kids, ages 15, 9 & 7, LOVE it!! Everytime I make it they all say "Mom, you make the BEST sauce!!" When we go out to eat they say "Mom you should give this restaurant your sauce recipe!!" THANK YOU BRYAN this is the Absolute BEST SAUCE!!! It's DELICIOUS!!! I have used chunky tomatoes as well as puree and crushed. Sometimes I add celery salt and sometimes I don't. You don't necessarily need that ingredient, so if you don't have any don't go buy it just for this, it's PERFECT without it!! And as far as chile pepper, I just use regular crushed red pepper and it works just fine. You will LOVE it!!  -  30 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    FANTASTIC! It was the perfect blend of sweet and hot. The longer it simmered on the stove the hotter it got. Next time we won't let it simmer quite so long.  -  03 Apr 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Haven't yet gone food shopping I didn't have much on hand this afternoon but an abundance of pasta and no ready-made sauce in a jar. I looked at the can of crushed tomatoes I had in the cupboard for months with the intent of making my own sauce and was finally forced to take the challenge...so glad I did. This was the absolute best sauce I've ever tasted!! I won't go back to jarred. I only required 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Suggestion: only use 1 TBS oilve oil - 2 made a film of oil around the end that just wouldn't encorporate into the sauce. Quick and Delicious!! Thanks Bryan!!!  -  08 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
