Chef<br/><br/>I worked at Sbarro in the back room for 3 years and the recipe is correct HOWEVER the oil we used is a blend - 10% olive/ 90% vegetable. I was concerned when I first worked there that it sounded like a lot of oil but it carried the flavors well and never tasted oily We did need to stir it up after a day or two in the cooler in order to blend it. I must say that after a career of foodservice as a Chef and a broadline Salseperson this is the best Marinara sauce I have ever tasted.

Is 12 oz of olive oil a mistake in the recipe? That equals 1.5 cups! Just in case it was correct, I tried this recipe as written and not surprisingly it turned out very oily!
