The recipe calls for tomato sauce, with tomato paste being optional. I just made tomato paste - do you think I could use that without the sauce?...

... By the way, I am going to freeze this not can it

I'm so glad you liked it, SKK! My friends and family say you never close a jar up - it's gone before you have a chance!

Hey Mrs.W - this recipe is amazingly wonderful, deep, flavorful. Took it to friends last night and no one could stop eating it. Afraid I don't have a lot left to freeze so will have to make more. This is a home run!

Thank you, Mrs.W. I with you about not canning it. Great recipe!

The recipe benefits from concentrated tomato, so upping the amount of paste, and perhaps adding water to achieve the texture you want, should work well. I'm not sure I would make the same suggestion if you were canning it, as the specific acid balance is important to shelf stability.
