A great sauce!!! I was just looking for something to do with the bumper crop this year. A taste treat! The port is a must from now on in sauce around here. My family thanks you for posting this recipe. Easy to make. Bound to make one linger at the table.

This is the best sause I have ever tried! I used an olive tampanade that I found in a store that carries fine foods, in place of ground black olives. I used a tawny porto. I doubled the garlic (as always) and the smell while simmering was driving us out of our minds. I made a home made fresh pasta lasnagne with it, our guests were melting in thier chairs. Follow the meal with a glass of the Porto! This is a GREAT recipe. Thank you
