This turned out to be very good! I do think the servings are rather generous, but some people like more meat than others. I used red wine, and added a very small amount of sugar, because the sauce seemed a little sour (either because of the tomatoes or the wine.) I halved the recipe, but didn't change anything else. The sauce actually was better after being left overnight. The fennel was more noticeable, too, which I liked. Thank you very much for posting this easy, delicious recipe.
