This was wonderful. But I thought the end product would be a thicker sauce. That said, it was extremely delicious and I will make it again and experiment with thickening the sauce more. Thanks for sharing. Made for Mediterranean Cruise - Cooking Photos Forum.

This was very delicious, I don't eat red meat (only poultry and fish/seafood) so this was perfect for me. The only thing I substituted was I used Pappardelle (very broad fettuccine) instead of spaghetti. The sauce was very filling and whole family enjoyed it. Thanks for posting AmandaInOz

Oh this was good, I used a home made passata sauce (compliments of a girlfriend) and did not add the herbs as I know this passata is very herby in itself. This was a good change from the usual beef, I was lucky to get some chicken breasts on special which I ground up so I knew it was all meat that went in. Served with Mandy from Oz Parmesan & Herb Bread 218059 and a tossed green salad. Wonderful meal, made for Recipe Swap #19 - August 2008.
