I used this recipe as a basis for a pasta sauce. I did lots of substitutions so I'm not rating this. However it was a very good starting point for a yummy sauce. I used dried chile flakes,a brown onion, no capsicum, chick peas insead of white beans and basil. I didn't blend half of the sauce but used a little cornflour to thicken things instead. All these things work.
