Mom's Fresh Tomato Sauce With Peas Recipe

During my years of a child mom didn't have alot of money.
She told me that grandma made this in the depression days.
We also didn't have alot of money growing up as kids, just mom raising us,  so we ate this alot too and  I still love it. Good memories.  Thanks Grandma.
