I'm rating this a 5 because the consistency is perfect; thick enough but not too much so that if one wanted to make a meatsauce out of it, the spoon would not stand up straight in the middle of ...

This was a decent marinara, but it had a bitter taste and the wine flavor was too strong. I felt like I was drinking a glass of wine while eating marinara sauce. Next time, I'll use less wine ...

Incredible sauce!!! Instead of stewed tomatoes I used crushed tomatoes so there was no need for the food processor. I fried the onions in 3 cloves of minced garlic and added 1 tsp. of dried ba...

I have made this so, so many times -- and it is phenomenal. I typically make 3x this much (as long as I'm going to all the work!) and then freeze it in family dinner-size portions. I make the ...

Awesome easy sauce, easy enough that I don't ever use a sauce from a jar anymore, I always keep all ingredients, in the pantry for a double batch, to go with homemade meatballs. This always get...

Wow. Great recipe. I used canned crushed tomato's and eliminated the entire food processor step. Added a bay leaf and simmered for half hour and added a tsp of butter at the end to smooth out th...
