Liked it VERY much!! I put a little TOO much garlic I think. Next time I will put one clove. I added two cloves, but they were rather large. Will make this again!

It was very thick. The flavor was good, but I would not use this on egg noodles again. It would be good as a sauce on my zucchini pizza or something similar.
