    aHardDaysNight's Note:

    I used Mario Batali's recipe for basic tomato sauce and added the flavors I love. That means crumbled italian sausage and red wine (my favorite italian flavors). I love the taste of this sauce because it uses thyme as the main flavor. It seems that others like it too, as I am always having to give the recipe out. I especially like to use it in my lasagna. Hope you enjoy!

      Great consistency, hearty thick sauce that sticks to pasta well.

      Just right! We did substitute other herbs for fresh thyme out of personal preference, but that doesn't mean you should. Nicely balanced, richly-flavored multipurpose sauce which we will use in a ziti casserole. Made for PAC.

      I used some Merlot that I had left over in ours and we loved this sauce so much! I served it over whole wheat pasta noodles and even my DS and DD commented on how good it was. Awesome sauce you have here! Thanks for sharing!
