I tried Lesí recipe for tomato sauce yesterday, but not in combination with the 6 in1 tomato sauce. I had different varieties of tomatoes from my garden and decided to try and use my regular sauce I use at market, in combination with Lesís method and rest of his recipe. I used my food processor to coarsely grate the slow oven baked tomatoes with garlic, salt and olive oil. I found Lesí recipe did also taste great in combination with my regular tomato sauce. I even ate a whole bowl of the sauce plain. Some day I am going to try something like a regular Walmart brand of crushed tomatoes with Lesís recipe. I donít know at this at this time, if the sauce will come out as good, but think after I have tried Lesí recipe many times, it could work with an inexpensive tomato sauce. I used 1 quart of my regular tomato sauce in combination with the tomatoes seen in my baking pan. I am not sure, but after trying many recipes for tomato sauce, in my opinion the slow bake of the tomatoes with garlic, sea salt, and olive oil and then combining the anise seed and fresh oregano, is what makes this sauce so special. With using Les' slow bake of tomatoes the taste of the baked tomatoes stays so sweet.
