I used this both with spaghetti and on pizza. It did it's job as a basic Italian tomato sauce, similar to what you'd buy in a jar. Because I had them on hand, I used fresh basil, oregano, and parmesan. I omitted the marjoram. I only had diced tomatoes--my husband said he would have preferred crushed, especially on the pizza, but I thought the diced worked well with the pasta.
