      This is very good! I was adventurous, using olives and capers, coming out of my comfort zone! And glad that I did, this is a rich and complex sauce, not at all your every day tomato sauce! And yet so easy to prepare, combine everything, let it cook! I prepared this on a Saturday afternoon and loved the rich aroma in my kitchen, and after cooling (and tasting) I've popped it in the fridge to enjoy later this week! Thanks for sharing an excellent recipe, Wendy!
