    katia's Note:

    This is a very common recipe that we make in Greece, during the Easter lent. The sauce has a very strong taste so there is no need for cheese on the top. Some people are adding cheese at the top but I never do.

      A delightfully different way to enjoy pasta. As some of the other reviewers noted, the sauce seemed a little dry. I did add a touch of the pasta water and it worked well. After taking the photo, I did top the servings with freshly grated cheese. Made for *PAC Fall 2008*

      This was very good. The only problem was the dryness of the sauce, like jeweilies i added more liquid but the taste was great!

      I really enjoyed this. It does have such a different flavour from the spaghetti sauces that I've tried before, this one is rich. I ended up adding a tiny bit of white wine and a bit of water as the sauce seemed quite dry. I also added an extra tomato instead of the paste (I'm not too keen on tomato paste). Serve with lots of black pepper and cheese but that is how I like my spaghetti. Thanks katia.
