  • Very Good

    This was really good sauce. I added some extra garlic since we're garlic lovers and changed out one can of diced tomatoes with fresh diced tomatoes in hopes of elimating some of the salt. I also used one can of tomato sauce and one can of paste to make it a bit thicker. - 1/12/10

  • Very tasty sauce. I did add zucchini, mushrooms and bell pepper to this because we like our sauce full of veggies. Great over ravioli and/or chicken breast. - 12/1/11
