This was a very good recipe. I made only a couple of alterations. I added a splash or red wine just because I don't think it is red sauce without a little red wine. Instead of dried basil, I added Italian spice which is a blend of basil, thyme, etc. I am not sure why a reviewer felt this recipe was overly sweet. In fact I like my sauce a little sweeter than what this recipe called for. The meatballs were very good. They reminded me of the ones made by many of the Italian cooks in my hometown. I think they always put them directly into the sauce and never browned them first. I will definitely use this recipe again. 12/8/14 I just made this sauce again. I used fresh herbs instead of my usual Italian blend. I used about 2 tsp fresh oregano and 3Tbsp of fresh basil. This really kicked up the brightness of the sauce.
