Awesome, awesome. I didn't peel tomatoes but did seed them; used dried basil (a generous helping) and left out tomato paste as I didn't have any. I can't wait to make this again. It didn't make close to 8 servings though-- it was enough for two of us as the main course.
Wow, was this delicious! You can't specifically taste the balsamic and worcestershire (which is a good thing), but they impart a depth, along with a sweetness and spiciness. I used spaghetti, less oil and salt, and more basil. Served two as an entree. Great dish - I definitely recommend it!
Smelling the sauce I was not sure I'd like it. But finally, all mixed together it's so good. I did the sauce mixed withCapelli D'Angelo. I didn't peel and seeded my tomatoes. I used roma tomatoes from my garden. I used more than 1 tbs of fresh basil. Thanks Lainey. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
