Phenomenal! I wanted to find a good recipe that my sister could have -- she has Celiac disease and can't have gluten, so readily available bottled sauce isn't something we can use. This was just wonderful. Before I added the slurry I had her taste the sauce and she said it tasted just like what she remembered from the restaurants. Five stars and two thumbs up!

A quick tip to those who said their sauce was too watery: a slurry (any type of starch mixed with water) needs to be made with cold to cool -- NEVER HOT -- water and added to SIMMERING liquid. It's okay to bring your liquid to a boil, but you need to lower it again until it's gently boiling with LITTLE waves. You can't just add cornstarch (or any starch) into a hot liquid, it won't bind it, and the liquid can't be too hot or it breaks the starch down and, again, it does nothing.
