Delicious! The kids loved it, the vegetarian wife loved it too.I will definitely double the recipe next time so there's enough to freeze

This was delicious, and pretty easy to put together. The wine did add a nice depth of flavor. Next time, I may use my stick blender to puree a bit of the veggies, but I'll definitely leave some alone for texture. Thanks for sharing!

Made this in the pressure cooker and it turned out beautifully. The only change I made was the addition of a couple of teaspoons of capers. (Next time I'd like to add a couple of small anchovy fillets as well.) I cooked it for 12 minutes under pressure (stopper rocking, medium) and then let it cool down on its own, and it was perfect. We had it last night on fried green tomatoes (Fried Green Tomatoes) with a sprinkle of feta cheese and it was to DIE for. Thanks for posting!

Made this to go with manicotti and it turned out great. I made the recipe as written except for the wine because I didn't have a bottle so I added in a bit of water to thin out the sauce. I also added in a 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes with basil and garlic. This was so easy and good!

This pasta sauce was great! It had such a rich and bold flavor to it along with the chunkiness of the tomatoes. I served it with Kittencal's Spinach & Four-Cheese Manicotti (Vegetarian). I did, at the end, add in a can of tomato sauce to thin it out a bit since it was a thicker sauce. Thanks for the great recipe! I will make again!

Thanks, Kittencal for a great classic pasta sauce recipe. This is the type of sauce that I grew up with but we made it from memory and managed to forget an item here or there. I've made your recipe a couple of times and am happy to have a written recipe to use. It's good after about an hour of simmering in a crock pot, but even better the next day.

I was looking for a sauce to make lasagna and tried this. I had to make some substitutions (that or go to the store). Didn't have an onion so used a large shallot. Used garlic that I had earlier roasted, and the oil I packed it in. Fresh basil. Didn't have roma tomatoes but used fire roasted tomatoes instead. B/c of that I passed on the red pepper flakes. No wine either, but did use Yuengling Lager instead. This came together very quickly - a huge plus in my book. It gave me a sauce of the consistency I was looking for, and I was not disappointed with the changes I made, although I'm sure the original is better :) This is a real keeper. Thank you Kittencal.
