  1. This is delicious, sweet and savory I can barely get it to the pasta before eating it all!
  2. This sauce is delicious! I used grape tomatoes on the vine, jarred minced garlic, dried parsley, and one packet of Truvia sugar substitute. Love garlic so added a bit more and used the juice of one small lemon. The tomatoes were sweet and the lemon juice brightened the flavors and blended them together. Couldnt stop tasting so I could review the recipe! :) This will definitely be made again. Made and reviewed for the Game Forums Went to the Market Tag Game.
  3. Wonderful , flavourful tomato sauce!! I had some grape tomatoes I had to use up. The combination of ingredients was perfect and sooo tasty! we especially enjoyed the touch of lemon juice and zest. So easy and quick to put together, I will make it often. Thanks for posting this very versatile recipe, I will use it in many different ways.
  4. Lovely sauce, Boomie. Perfect for me with the glut of tomatoes in the back yard. For that reason I had to add a zucchini too, hope you don't mind. Served sauce with macaroni noodles and it was a great meal, full of fresh flavour.
  5. I really enjoyed this sauce. It was very simple and a great way to use garden-fresh tomatoes! So fresh. Thanks for sharing.
