Hello! Thank you for a great sauce! I just made a couple of minor changes. I didn't have fresh basil, so I used dried. Before adding the onion, I used my stick blender make the rest of the ingredients less chunky, but I love the bits of onion. Other than that I made the recipe exactly. It was very tasty with just the right balance of spice/sweet. :)
