Not even sure where I happened to come across this recipe, but I was looking for a tomato sauce for my stuffed cabbage rolls. My DH said this was the only sauce he ever wanted me to use {he says that about a lot of the things I cook, LOL}. This works great for cabbage rolls, stuffed green peppers, or pretty much any casserole/hotdish/goulash that needs a red sauce.

Stove Top


1 can(s)
8oz tomato sauce
1 can(s)
6oz tomato paste
1 Tbsp
brown sugar, firmly packed
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 tsp
worcestershire sauce {more is not a bad thing, a teaspoon is a starting point}
1 can(s)
28oz tomatoes
whole bay leaves


1Mix all together and cook out the flavor of the canned tomato products.
2Can cut a carrot into sticks & replace the brown sugar. Adds a deeper richer flavor & tends to stick/burn less than the sugar does. Tastes great too if you want to eat the softened cooked carrot.
3Bay leaves can be ground up in a spice/coffee grinder & added to the sauce in place of the whole leaf(s).
