 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   28       oz           Canned Progresso Plum
                         Tomatoes w/Basil, drained
   12       oz           Tomato paste
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/2   ts           Pepper
    1       t            Onion powder
    1       tb           Oregano, heaping
    1       t            Garlic powder
    2       tb           Parmesan cheese
      1/8   c            Olive oil
 
   This sauce has a quality similar to restaurant flavor,
   but being freshly made seems to take on a better
   flavor.
   
     Puree the drained tomatoes well.  It is important to
   use Italian Plum Tomatoes, not regular canned
   tomatoes.  The flavor is distinctively different.  If
   you cannot find Progresso Plum Tomatoes with basil,
   add 1/2 ts. dried basil to the tomatoes.
   
     Place the puree mixture in heavy saucepan.  Add
   remaining ingredients except for the grated cheese.
   Simmer 1/2 hour, or longer if necessary.
   
   Add cheese last 10 minutes of cooking. The canned
   grated parmesan is good in this recipe, as well as
   fresh.
   
     Sauce can be frozen if needed.
   
   Enjoy! - Jeff Duke
