This sauce was absolutely divine! I halfed the recipe, and served this on whole grain penne. Just so you have an picky, way picky 4 year old, tried this an ate it for dinner! Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top and you are in heaven! I liked how you can control the thickness of the sauce by adding the broth. Oh, this will be repeated in the future, thanxs so much for posting!
