nancysj - this sauce actually turns out really well if you read other people's suggestions below. i gave this two stars because i did a lot of modifications - i believe that a recipe can only be rated high based on the ORIGINAL recipe, not on modifications. this might be why it's gotten such a high rating. anyways, i combined a bunch of reviewers' ideas into one. first of all, i used 14 oz cans instead of the 28 oz, and i thought it was plenty saucy. instead of stewed tomatoes, i used a can of pureed tomatoes plus a 6 oz can of tomato paste to thicken the sauce. i only used 1 tbsp of sugar which i felt like was plenty, and i only used 1 bell pepper. instead of ground beef i used a pound of chicken sausage (casings removed). it came out pretty flavorful - next time i'm going to add more oregano and some rosemary.
