This was a pretty good tasting and fairly easy sauce to make. It doesn't have the traditional taste that I am used to in a pasta sauce, but my family really did enjoy this in the lasagna I used it in. I used this recipe with Baking*Belle's recipe for Garfield's Lasagna which I just added the vegetables in that recipe to at the end. I followed the ingredient list precisely and then started to cook this on the stove-top as indicated and switched it to a crock pot for the 6 hour simmer time. I had enough sauce for two meals, so the second half of the batch is waiting in the freezer for a hectic night. Thank you for a great sauce Baking Barb! Made for PAC Spring 2014.
