    This came out great. I doubled the recipe and made it in my slow-cooker on low. I turned it to the high setting for the last half hour or so and canned it. It made four pints and about half a cup. I shared it with my son and my aunt and they pronounced it "very yummy" :) - 2/26/11

    love this. Tried it first with spaghetti. Make sure u use crushed not diced tomatoes. We also use it w/ meatballs for subs or pasta. - 9/22/10

    This sauce is really good...

    I used some fresh Basil instead of dried (throw chopped leaves in with tomato but fried stalks with onions and garlic.

    Also I used passata instead of "crushed" tomatoes. (had to adapt this for EU based products)
