Really good flavor, but I found it too sweet. I would cut the sugar in half next time. Also, the sauce is a bit too watery for lasagne, so I added some tomato paste to thicken it up.

This was way too sweet and the vinegar was too much. I added tomato paste, basil, oregano and beef broth to try to thicken the sauce and cut the vinegar and sugar. I will not make this again.

The sauce was tasteless and unless you and your family love spicy I do not recommend putting that much crushed pepper in.

I think half the sugar is more than enough. Eleven tomatoes gave me almost 5 pounds of tomatoes. They were sweet enough naturally, so I put in 2 Tbsp of sugar and that was fine to compensate for...

A little on the sweet side, I will definetely cut the sugar, maybe even just add a pinch the next time i make this.
