I'm an experienced cook, however this is my first time making an authentic marinara sauce and i'm real pleased with the results. Only thing i would do diffrent is cut the red wine down to 3/4 cup. Thanks for a great recipe John!

I don't even have to taste this because this is how I fix mine using only 1/2 C of red wine. Thanks for posting it for me :0)
