    Baby Kato's Note:

    This sauce is so quick and easy to make, it takes any pasta dish to a new level. Simple pasta, marinara sauce and parmesan cheese...yummy! We prefer it served in our favorite lasagna or manacotti dish. I never buy store bought any longer, not when its this easy to make dishes taste special.

      A really good quality sauce. Lots of olive oil, I agree, but we like it that way. Left mine a bit on the chunky side, again to please the family. Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap #56.

      This was a really tasty marinara sauce, but I do wish that I had cut back on the olive oil, as it ended up being a bit more oily than I like. I doubled the recipe and froze half the sauce for later use. I used some San Marzano tomatoes, which were excellent. For the sweet onion, I used a Vidalia. I also added the fresh basil with the other seasonings. I can think of some many uses for this sauce. I will be making this again. Made for ZWT7 by a Hot Pink Lady.

      Oh my goodness, this is some GREAT pasta sauce!! I served this as a vegetarian option at a family reunion. Everyone loved the sauce. My sister-in-law couldn't stop raving about it and said it was the best pasta sauce she has had since Italy. Now that is a high compliment! I doubled the sauce and stirred in one pound of cooked angel hair pasta. The only change I used, to make things easier on me while preparing dinner for 18 people, was to use Muir Glen organic chunky tomato sauce instead of the whole/peeled tomatoes. Made for ZWT 7 - Italy Holidays and Entertaining Challenge. Gratzie!
