Is fresh oregano in a tomato sauce a crime?

Diana | Jul 26, 2007 12:19 PM

I was once told never to use oregano in tomato sauces.
Never told WHY, just not to do it by an Italian.

Is it really a sin? I like oregano!

The sauce will have tomotoes, garlic, onions, basil, fresh tomatoes at the end.

Can I add oregano?

Also, what is the prevailingopinion about black olives in sauce?
