Homemade Pasta Sauce Recipe (with tomato) - How to make pasta sauce

Homemade Pasta Sauce Recipe
I used to buy pasta sauce from Nilgiris and the brands always differ each time due to stock.So it was always a risky factor for me to a get a new brand each time....And as we make pasta rarely the big bottle I purchase never emtpies and by the time the expiry approaches. So these days I never buy pasta sauce...I go in for either instant white sauce recipes or pesto recipes. So this was the main reason for me to try homemade pasta sauce, though I didnt mean to store it for long due to the current cuts. I just referred the recipe and tweaked it to suit our taste.
