I have a question about the recipe "Summer Squash Enchiladas" from PJ . There is no mention of sugar in the ingredients. How much sugar am I supposed to add to tomato sauce?

hmmmm....I'd start with a very small amount, like a teaspoon. Then taste as you go.

I would add half teaspoon per pound of tomatoes...

I never add sugar to tomato sauce, so I wouldn't use any.

I agree with ChefJune. Many inexperienced cooks add sugar to tomato sauce because they think they are supposed to. Theory being that it cuts acidity. It doesn't. Totally unneccesary. And why would you want to sweeten tomato sauce anyway?
