      Fantastic! My DH just raved about this sauce. We like our sauce smooth, so I used my immersion blender at the end of the second cook time. I added cooked ground sirloin (seasoned with garlic powder and salt) on top of our boiled spaghetti noodles, then the sauce. For the two of us, this makes enough sauce for dinner plus two more dinner size portions to freeze, and another smaller portion to use for meatball subs or whatever. I followed the recipe (using Cento brand crushed tomatoes), added a little more garlic, but no crushed red pepper (DH is allergic), which I know would have kicked it up yet another notch. Thanks for this simple, yet delicious recipe.

      This is worthy of 10 stars. I've been using another recipe for marinara for eons and this is so amazing!!! It definitely surpasses the other. I used more crushed red pepper and more garlic. Will definitely make this my go-to recipe!

      Excellent sauce. The pepper mixed with oil gives it a wonderful depth of flavor, and the wine was perfect. I wanted to make this just as written, but I did modify due to necessity and my husband tasting the sauce before I was done, and forbidding me to change a thing! I used 30oz tomato sauce and 6oz tomato paste, and added NO chopped or crushed tomatoes. I otherwise made it exactly as written. I was getting ready to add the tomatoes (subbing some extra sauce for some of the tomatoes, because I was out) when my husband tasted it and begged me to leave it as is! It was wonderful and very, very well received! I only simmered it for an hour or so. We just couldn't wait!
