I personally didn't love it like I did all the other recipes I've tried from this website only because I thought the basil, ketchup and stewed tomatoes made it a little to sweet for my taste buds. However my husband loved it! He said it was great! So it's all a matter of taste. If you like a sweeter marinara sauce you will probably love this recipe. It's certainly worth trying.
