This was a very good recipe. I sauteed the onion, green peppers and some garlic in oil and then added the tomato puree (we love garlic in our sauce). It turned out very good and I would make it again. I will add some fennel next time with the seasonings. Served with a green salad. Thank you! Made for Spring PAC 09.
