    This wasn't bad, but wasn't what I was expecting. The flavor of the sauce was good, but it was entirely too runny. If I made again, I would omit the 1/4 c. water and use 2 tbsp tomato paste instead of the diced tomatoes - I think that would help the sauce be thicker. A good concept though! - 3/17/08
