    I made this recipe tonight and cooked both noodles and rice. I had it with rice and it was absolutely deliscious! I made it exactly as written and will continue to do so. It was perfect as I had some over ripe tomatoes and what a perfect way to use them and not waste them. - 9/1/10

    Awesome sauce! I used the recipe to can my own fresh tomatoes out of my garden. Used the sauce to make chicken parmesean and it was yummy! You can trim the fat even further by using olive oil spray. - 7/24/07

    Tasty, easy and the perfect use for all these tomatoes I have laying around right now! I added just a touch of balsamic vinegar and used lots of basil. - 9/11/09
