  • Excellent. The only subs made was a few dashes of ACV instead of the wine and regular tomatoes instead of plum tomatoes. - 6/2/19

  • Incredible!
    I love this recipe but can't have regular pasta. I use Konjac noodles instead. While it does change the texture a bit, the flavors are awesome! - 5/29/19
