1 15 oz. can tomato sauce (store bought or home canned)
2-3 tbs. butter
2-3 tbs. flour
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
1 c. milk
salt and pepper to taste
optional: 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes, other seasonings such as basil or oregano
In a saucepan on medium heat, melt butter, add flour and stir for about 1 minute. Add milk and salt. Stir until sauce is a medium thickness. Add tomato sauce and if desired diced tomatoes (I left them out). I also added some water, about 1/2 a can to thin it out a bit. Add your seasonings to taste and serve. YUM!!! So good and while the canned sauce still has sodium, you can use low sodium if you want, it doesn't taste as salty as canned tomato soup does. My friend uses evaporated milk, but I didn't have any and just used regular milk. This was fast, easy, yummy and got two thumbs up from everyone who ate it. It can easily serve 2-4 people depending on how much you eat.
This could be adjusted depending on the amount of people, just double the white sauce and add more tomato sauce.
