I have been doing this for YEARS! Fast, simple, and kids love it! Want to make it taste even better????? Add a can of Campbell's BISQUE of tomato soup; it adds just the tiniest bit of sweetness to the sauce!

What size can of crushed tomatoes do u use? Like a 14.5 -15 oz. can or a 28 oz. can. I'm thinking like the 28 oz. can. TIA

Good basic recipe. You can add or subtract as your taste dictates. Texas Pete Sauce is a type of hot sauce but you can use any type that you like.
