Notes

How do I thicken or thin out the sauce?

Depending on your preference of thickness-you can choose to make the sauce thinner or thicker by adding water or cornstarch. 

To thicken:

Use Cornstarch. Cornstarch is pretty neutral in flavor and can be easily added to the sauce.  Whisk 1/2 tsp cornstarch with a little water. Pour into the simmer sauce and stir until well combined. You’ll often see thickening results with a small amount of cornstarch.

Use Tomato Paste: add 1-2 Tbsp of tomato paste to thicken the sauce.

To thin out: add 1/4-1 cup tomato sauce while sauce is simmering. 

  • Add 2 tsp of zero point white granulated sugar substitute, for added sweetness.
