Like some of the others, I initially found this to lack some depth. That could have been due to the specific broth I used which wasn't as rich as I would have liked. I was surprised that the sweetness of the apple did not come through. There was no mention of what kind of apple would be best for this. I had a Fuji on hand, so that's what I used. I'll try others next time. Because of the thin-flavored broth and the lack of sweetness from the apple, the garlic just ended up overpowering the sauce, so I'd probably cut the garlic in half. Despite all of this, I did enjoy the sauce.
But I did have to make some modifications to appeal to my kids. I added a lot more cheese and blended the sauce. I also added a pinch of oregano at the end to give it a little more flavor. Served with liberal amounts of Parmesan on top. My older child had seconds, and the second griped his way through it, but I was thrilled he ate as much of the veggies as he did (I also let him crumble corn chips over it - I didn't have bread crumbs or crackers...the things I do to appeal to a young palate). To the poster who asked why the recipe didn't look like the photo, the photos were taken by others who pureed their sauce, not the original poster.
