"Absolutely awesome! Just got through with dinner...I made canelloni and topped them with this sauce and my hubby looooooved the sauce! he says its better than the normal marinara sauce we usually buy. Only made one small change....instead of canned tomato sauce, I used 5 oven roasted tomatos (I just put 5 Roma tomatos in a cookie sheet in the oven and then pureed them). Grrrrrrreat!"
"Delicious and easy to make."
"Wow! This is absolutely delicious! To make it more chunky, simply throw everything in the food processor or blender. Update: I have been making this ever since I found the recipe. I use it as a dipping sauce and as my main spaghetti sauce as well. It is soo good and very easy. I love this recipe :)"
"This was so easy and had an excellent flavor. I used 3 cloves of minced garlic and added a can of whole tomatoes (in addition to the can of tomato sauce). I omitted the sugar and olive oil. I used the sauce on top of whole wheat rotini and topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese. It was fantastic. I will definitely make again. Oh, the kids like it, too!"
"Yummy! I needed an easy Marinara sauce that doesn't use tomatoes, and here it is! My roommates gobbled it up. Thanks for the recipe!"
"I was in the middle of a OAMC spree, and had everything planned out that I was making. Well, I forgot and dumped all my jarred sauce into my cooked ground meat. I needed pasta sauce to spoon on top of recipe#204682. So I whipped this up in a flash. My only change to the recipe was to add 1/2 teaspoon of beef bouillion. It made the sauce taste like it had been simmering all day without allow it to sit at all! Veggie bouillion would probably do the same! Thanks for a WONDERFUL go to recipe!"
"This was great, fast and easy. I loved it."
"This was good, but I used 8 oz of tomato sauce and 8 oz of petite diced tomatoes. I also simmered for 30 min to let the flavors blend. I didn't have rosemary or an onion (I did used dried chopped onions, though) and it was still excellent!"
"Delicious! I've been wanting a homemade marinara sauce to serve with chicken parmesan & I've finally found it! No more store bought spaghetti sauce-this is easier, more economical & tastier. I accidently used 1 tsp oregano & 1/4 tsp basil, which worked fine. I would suggest simmering the sauce for around 30 min-it thickens the sauce & blends the flavors better that way. I also used 1 tsp dried minced garlic from a jar, which worked fine as well; gave it a great garlicky flavor. Thanks, Dicewoman! "
"Made this to use as a dip with toasted ravioli #59907. Very good for a quick and easy recipe. Thanks Dicewoman. Bullwinkle"
"i liked this recipe.. i added about 4 oz of tomato paste and let it cook for longer than 15 min.. Tasty for a quick lunch :) "
