I liked this recipe and, more to the point, my family did, too. It's a good basic recipe that can be a springboard for more experimentation. Even in its most basic form, I think it needed some added sugar to cut the acidity of the tomatoes. I used this sauce for my eggplant parmigiana and it was delicious. Also, because I prefer a sauce with ground meat and mushrooms for my pasta dishes, I have added them to the mix and the results were excellent. Next time, I think I'll add some chopped fennel and Italian sausage. As people's definition of "spicy" varies widely, let me say that for my family (all of whom love spicy foods) the 2 tsp. of red pepper flakes are not too much, but if you're not a fan of heat, you might want to go easy on the red pepper initially.
