UPDATE: We got it! Used a combo of Twelve Recipes canned tomatoes sauce recipe and some great tips from The Kitchn. I added a parmesan rind, some capers, some wine (Chardonnay actually worked out great) and a little bit of butter. Next time, I’m trying anchovies!
I can’t seem to get this right! I did put too much sage in it this time, but next time I make tomato sauce I need to follow the tips from The Kitchn (wine, parmesan cheese rind, etc).
