      I haven't made a lot of tomato-based pasta sauces from scratch, but this one was fantastic! I substituted crushed tomatos for the whole tomatoes. I made this with a slow cooker and it was perfect. I sauteed the red pepper, garlic and onions in a pan and then added it to the slow cooker later. I think the key to this recipe is to let the sauce simmer for as long as possible. It really lets the flavors combine. Also - crush the dry spices in your hand before you add them to the sauce. It helps bring out the natural oils in the spice.

      I tried a few different pasta sauce recipes on here after my cookbooks went missing from our move 5 months ago. This one is my favorite! I add italian sausage or grd beef. Sometimes a litte wine if I have it. I also add a few more spices and just a sprinkle of pepper flakes. The chicken broth really makes a difference. Thanks for a great recipe! Defintely a keeper!
