    This is a delicious recipe that my husband and I absolutely loved! I served it with gnocchi instead of pasta and it was a great combination!

    This is great. The only changes I made were to add an extra tablespoon of bacon grease, 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes and 1/2 jalapeno. We like it very spicy. I can't wait until my tomatoes in my garden are ready. I will definitely make this again. Thanks.

    This is the yummiest sauce for pasta I have made in a while. I didnt even add the spiciness for the kids and it was still WOW. I added a couple drops of smoke flavoring because I used turkey bacon and it was great.
