The directions mention garlic, but not in the ingredients or where to add it. I added it to the sauce. I also used pureed tomatoes and didn't use the 2nd bit of olive oil and that worked just fine. The vinegar in this gives it a nice little bite. I whipped this up in 15 minutes flat for a quick lunch today. Yum!
