I watched the video before making. I was confused because the recipe in the video was different. The video called for 2 carrots and 1/2 cup of water instead of 1 carrot and 2 cups of water. I added 1 carrot and 1/2 cup of water and all the other ingredients as stated. I simmered the sauce for 3 hours with lid on. The sauce had the proper consistancy so did not add more water. I precooked 16 oz of penne as shown. My wife slowly added the required cup of parmesan cheese to 4 cups of sauce; stirring constantly while slowly adding. The cheese formed a solid mass in the sauce and finally had to be extracted and given to the dog. The 4 cups of sauce was not nearly enough to cover the 16 oz of Penne so the remainder of the sauce was added. It also failed to adequately cover the Penne. The tomatoes failed to blend with the meat to produce a rich tomato base. It tasted OK but was nothing special and I will not make this again.
