This was a great recipe - I, too, was concerned that there was too much basil in this, but there is ALOT of sauce, so I went with the amount stated and didn't find it overwhelming at all. This sauce is delicious.. I did add some sugar at the end of a 4-hour simmer, because my tomatoes were a bit bitter, but otherwise followed the instructions to a T.. Will make again, thanks!
I haven't made this, but I have to say that there is way too much basil. The basil has to be overpowering. If anone has tried this recipe, I'd be very curious to hear how it turned out!
