This sauce was fantastic and tasted like summer! I have my usual family recipe that's been around for years that I normally make, and it's quite hearty filled with tons of veggies and meat, but this was a nice change of pace. I made it exactly as written and would only suggest maybe adding a pinch of sugar. For the tomatoes I used 8 Roma Tomatoes - these are naturally sweeter, have fewer seeds and hold up really well in sauces. I see others have suggested red wine instead of the water - this would work well too if you have it, and I might try that next time if I have a bottle open. I don't understand the reviews saying this is "too salty", when the recipe clearly states you are to add salt "TO TASTE". If it's too salty, then that's your own fault. Taste as you cook. Also, since this is a quick sauce, the flour thickens it, instead of simmering it for hours to thicken. Yes, the texture might be a little better without the flour, but for the short cooking time, it has its purpose. I found the sauce to be very flavorful and I wish I had made more. The servings sizes are a little small - I found this made 4 side servings. If you are looking for a main entree, then this would make 2 servings. This is a perfect way to use up all that crazy, out of control basil that's growing in my garden. A nice chunky sauce that you can blend up a bit if you prefer a smoother consistency. Thank you Kayleigh for sharing your recipe!
