1 1/2 cups

I like my sauce thicker and less "chunky" but overall was easy to prepare and my kids liked the meatballs. I left out the raisins - it seemed like an odd addition to me but what do I know? I think we'll probably make again but add in tomato paste instead of one of the cans of diced tomatoes and go heavier on the spices (again, personal preference - I like a more flavorful sauce. This recipe is more likely to appeal to more people though).
