Wow! This sauce is incredible... really! I did half the recipe, to my family's disappointment, but won't next time. I used your meatball recipe and added add'l sugar since I only had one hour to simmer. We didn't use the wine. Grandma's sauce is a good name because it definitely had the comforting, delicious flavor! I highly recommend trying this savory sauce!

This marinara is exceptional - and I don't think I will ever use another! I've been looking for one that called for onion, garlic and basil, but didn't include oregano, because to me, that's so pizza.. LOL.. I plan on making your Sicilian meatballs on Sunday and crush some up to use in a lasagna. If grandma's marinara is this good, I can't wait to try her meatballs! Thanks so much for posting this, I think this recipe is in my top-3 favorite finds in Recipezaar so far..

I had already made a spice blend for my sauce when I saw your recipe. I followed the rest of the recipe, using red wine and no sugar. I LOVED the texture of the sauce and it made a nice base for my lasagna. Thanks for posting- Roxygirl
