      This is a very nice sauce and was very easy to prepare, as well as very quick. The directions were very clear and accurate. The taste was good, but didn't quite suit our tastes. I felt the peppers and the thyme were very pronounced, and even though I love those two ingredients, they overwhelmed the sauce for me. This, unfortunately didn't go over as well with my family as I had hoped.

      This is a really good sauce. I used red and green bell peppers, left out the bouillon cube because of some other reviews and the saltiness, used dried parsley, fresh basil and didn't have any dark wine so I used White Zin. It was thick and the flavor was very good. I will definitely make this again.
