Great sauce. The chicken stock is the magic here. I would cut the pepper flakes back a bit. I used Penzy's red pepper flakes and next time I might use a 1/4 rounded tsp. I like food with a kick, but this was just a wee bit over. This recipe is now my standard. Thanks

Truly a great basic pasta sauce recipe. I replaced the whole tomatoes with crushed tomatoes, it is much less messy and it has a more consistent texture. I also like to use about 6 cloves of garlic (the garlic taste is not over-whelming because it is pan fried first). Adding a bay leaf, oregano, extra parsley flake and basil for the cook adds good flavors. Finally, I found that 1/8 tsp of crushed red pepper was an acceptable level for the kids. I would recommend adding 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper at a time until you find your desired hotness.

This sauce was good. The only thing I did different was to add fresh oregano, parsley, thyme and basil. This will be good for my grandkids, after I blend the chucks out of it. They are picky that way. Thanks for sharing.

Great rich flavor, but as others said, I think I'd cut the red pepper flakes back a bit.

Robust! This actually tasted more like a Cajun style meal than Italian. Not bad, just surprisingly bold. Thanks!

v. good. made with three whole italian heirlooms from our garden, as well as 1/2 a zucchini, and two sweet red italian peppers, finely chopped. added a splash of red wine. pureed in the blender. very tasty. oh, i ended up adding just a bit more salt and sugar to bring out the flavors.

Maybe it was the tomatoes I used...but it was a little acidic and not sweet enough...I REALLY wanted to like this, too since it has such rave reviews! It wasn't bad, don't get me wrong...just not...that great...used "Hunt's" tomatoes...
