I am not a red sauce lover but my family is. We all enjoyed it very much. I think in the future I may not put in as much honey or just add more wine! Very good though!
This is a WONDERFUL red sauce - super easy to prepare and VERY complex in taste. My husband & I will DEFINITELY be making this sauce again!
This is a VERY GOOD red sauce,easy to prepare. I used Syrah wine, my home canned crushed tomatoes. Served the sauce over Fusilli pasta, with homemade bread. DH loved it. Had some sauce left so I froze it for another meal. Thank you Heather for another delicious recipe.
Red sauce made in 45 minutes wouldn't be so good without so much sweetner added but when pressed for time this is the best red sauce I have had in awhile. Loved it with whole wheat linguine and a good amount of grated parmesan. It looked beautiful in the simmering pot. I think all that honey gave it a really nice sheen!
This sauce is pretty good. I doubled the rosemary and still couldn't even tell it was there. I will probably make this again, just adding more rosemary. Thanks for sharing :)
this was a really nice sauce. enjoyed the red wine flavor but thought it could use a bit more spice
reduced a little more then called for and added an extra 1/4 cup of wine at the end. also increased rosemary to 2 tsp and basil to 3 tsp. added a touch of salt and pepper. nice smoky flavor. don't skip the real grated Parmesan! trust me! update: this time i was trying to save some of the parm for another projects so i also added some grated sharp light cheddar-this works just as well!
So easy, and delicious. I always have that little bit of red wine that needs to be used, and this is definitely the recipe to use it up in! I didn't have crushed tomato so I used a can of diced and they worked perfect.
The red wine in this sauce was a nice addition over typical marinara sauces as others have mentioned. It was very easy to make and something I'd make again. I only gave four stars however because I feel it needs something to balance out the acidic flavors from both the wine and tomato sauce, perhaps just a bit of olive oil. Also, it did seem to benefit from some extra simmering. Thanks Heather!
made it and didnt think so much of it...then after it was gone i CRAVED it! gotta make it again soon!
