      Wonderful! You can't ask for more flavour than this sauce provides. I've been making a similar one for years but this one is just perfect in its ingredients and proportions with lots of bold accents. One change I made was to add a hefty splash of a good red wine I have on hand - makes all the difference in the world for a flavourful red sauce. I have to say that I didn't use the Parmesan either. I crumbled some feta and sprinkled that over top and it was just unbelievable. This one is a keeper and I recommend that everyone try it!

      I LOVED this! Followed the directions except I didn't have any capers or dried red chili, and I used part of a red bell pepper. Tasted great, and DH says I'm going to make it again. Thanks for this fantastic recipe!
