This sauce was very good and easy, however I did skip the green pepers, and added meat and it still turned out good. Thanks for sharing your recipe, my family loved it!
I was SUPER excited to try this recipe after reading the reviews, but I HAD to have done something wrong. Though I did follow it to a "T". The sauce was very very bitter! It was also very bland... which surprised me. I tried adding some sugar and some other seasonings to help but nothing could rescue it. My family liked it and they ate it, and my husband said he liked it(though I think he was just being sweet), but I personally couldn't stand it. I think I might try making it once more... but as it stands right now this was a total let down for me :^(
Delicious! My boyfriend loved this sauce. I was so angry because the mushrooms I had went bad, so I had to leave them out. The sauce was great without them, though!
This is such an easy recipe! It came out wonderful and I used the sauce for eggplant parmigiana. Thank you for sharing!
This sauce was excellent and very fresh tasting. I added some water to make it a little thinner. It was to thick for my taste. Also I added a few packets of sugar to make it a little more sweet. A few extra added spices and this was perfect. I will never buy jarred pasta sauce again.
I love this sauce. I didn't have mushrooms, but improvised with a small amount of brown sugar, minced garlic and lean ground beef. It is an excellent foundational recipe for Italian dishes.
Taste exactly what my Mom used to make. Ah! the memories...She is gone now. But I can finally recreate her recipe thanks to you...It was marvelous.
This is a delicious sauce recipe. I omitted the mushrooms but it turned out well. I added a pound of ground beef I had sauteed with spices and had a delicious meat sauce to serve over pasta. Thanks.
