"This is a basic Italian sauce that can be used in any dish, including lasagne, cannelloni, ravioli, etc. It's very easy and tastes so good! Also, it smells like heaven!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

tomatoes, coarsely chopped
red wine vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons
crushed red pepper
Really good flavor, but I found it too sweet. I would cut the sugar in half next time.
Also, the sauce is a bit too watery for lasagne, so I added some tomato paste to thicken
This was way too sweet and the vinegar was too much. I added tomato paste, basil, oregano and beef broth to try to thicken the sauce and cut the vinegar and sugar. I will not make this again.
Won't make THIS again....wasted a lot of good tomatoes on this one!
it was a little sweet as is, so i made the following changes: i cut the sugar in half, and added 1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon instead of placing a stick in the sauce... i also omitted the cloves, but added 1/8 tsp ground peppercorns. i also added sliced ring bolgna, and stewed it with the sauce. it absorbed the flavor nicely.
I think half the sugar is more than enough. Eleven tomatoes gave me almost 5 pounds of tomatoes. They were sweet enough naturally, so I put in 2 Tbsp of sugar and that was fine to compensate for acidity. Pretty good otherwise. Thank you for your recipe.
A little on the sweet side, I will definetely cut the sugar, maybe even just add a pinch the next time i make this.
