My name is Jamie & I am the Chef of Johnny D's Waffles & Bakery. . I believe that with a little guidance anyone that wants to learn to cook or bake, can. After all at some point, I didn't know what I was doing. I will be sharing recipes with you that I developed for my restaurant & at home. Also, if there is anything new going on at the restaurant, I will also be sharing them here.

This tomato sauce is easy to make and can be ready in under 30 minutes. I use this sauce for chicken parm, penne ala vodka, pizza and basically anything you need a tomato sauce for.
1. In a medium sauce pot heat the oil over medium-high heat, then add onions, carrots, garlic, sundried tomato, all the seasonings & fresh or frozen basil. Cook the mixture until onions start to darken around the edges.
2. Reduce to medium heat and add the red wine vinegar to the pot to deglaze, stirring and allow the vinegar to cook off for 1-2 minutes.
3. Then add the tomato, tomato paste & sugar (add desired amount, I usually use 2) Allow to come to a boil and then lower flame to allow to simmer for about 15 minutes. Carefully transfer to a blender and blend until smooth, then have a taste to see if you prefer more sugar. If so then add and blend a little longer. Return to pot to hold until your ready to use it or allow to cool and store in an air tight container in refrigerator for later use.
