Tasty sauce. Different and fresh tasting. I made the recipe exactly as is (the vegetarian version) and it came out great. Very simple and quick. The amounts of basil and oregano were perfect.

A nice sauce that doesn't take too long. I used a 28-oz can of diced tomatoes pureed in the blender. I also simmered with a few bay leaves and added a dash of celery salt. We enjoyed. Thank you.
