      Absolutely awesome! Just got through with dinner...I made canelloni and topped them with this sauce and my hubby looooooved the sauce! he says its better than the normal marinara sauce we usually buy. Only made one small change....instead of canned tomato sauce, I used 5 oven roasted tomatos (I just put 5 Roma tomatos in a cookie sheet in the oven and then pureed them). Grrrrrrreat!

      Wow! This is absolutely delicious! To make it more chunky, simply throw everything in the food processor or blender. Update: I have been making this ever since I found the recipe. I use it as a dipping sauce and as my main spaghetti sauce as well. It is soo good and very easy. I love this recipe :)
