This is a great sauce! My husband and children loved it, even with it being just a little spicy. It is great for those who love garlic, and a rich, fresh taste.

This is a great sauce! My husband and children loved it, even with it being just a little spicy. It is great for those who love garlic, and a rich, fresh taste.

I halved the recipe and added 2 cans of tomato paste instead of 1-1/2, and also added a pinch or 2 of cinnamon. This would make a good pizza sauce or could be used in lasagna as well, I'd think...

Pretty good and easy. I added ground beef. My husband likes smooth spaghetti sauce and this worked for him.

My whole family loves this sauce. I first made it six months ago and used it in lasagna. Now we use it for any time we need a tomato sauce. Every one who tries it comments on how wonderful it...

The flavor was yummy! It wasn't chunky enough for me, so next time, I'm going to try adding some veggies and meat!

I agree with the last reviewer - this absolutely tastes like Chef Boyardee. I even added the meat and to no avail.

Sorry, but this tasted like Chef BoyArDee to me.

Sorry - didn't like this. I thought the allspice would be more subtle but it ended up being too strong for my tastes. It did have a sort of "tang" to it, but not the kind I like.
