This one's really good, you'll get requests for the recipe when you serve this one. Great for a not too expensive "company's coming dinner" Serve with a Green Salad and a hearty Italian Style Bread, and a glass of your favorite red wine.

This was quite tasty...however I did make a few slight changes to ingredients and prep. First 4 t. of sugar I could see would be WAY too much..1 t. was just enough to cut the acidity...maybe even a little less could have done the job. I also added about 1t. of minced garlic as I cannot imagine a tomato dish without it. Lastly for ingredients...I "swished" out the tomato can with some white wine to get all the good bits out...I'd say 1/4c. max of wine. Now maybe I am outdated but I was always taught sour cream can break down if cooked too long, so keeping that in mind, I simmered everything BUT the sour cream for 45 minutes. I then took the stick blender and pureed the mix as all the liquid had been cooked down. I then added the sour cream and gently heated it for an additional 15 minutes to keep with the original cooking time. I served this over rotini to get everybit of the thick sauce and topped it all with a generous amount of freshly grated Parmesan. I kept thinking this would be a fabulous sauce over a grilled or sauteed chicken breast too. Thank you for sharing this tasty little sauce, I am sure it will be repeated at our home.
