    This was delicious! Was looking for a sauce for my vegetable lasagna. This was perfect! I cooked it in the crockpot. That was the only variation from recipe...maybe a bit of brown sugar too.

    Delicious! We love this recipe! I decreased the crushed red pepper and added frozen Italian-style meatballs at the end. I cooked the sauce in my slow cooker.

    This is a fantastic recipe for a basic marinara sauce! I followed the recipe as written although I think I used all diced tomatoes as that's all I had on hand. It turned out really well and is very flavourful. I froze quart sized bag portions to use for future. I made this on a Saturday night during family movie night....it really does sit on the back of the stove. Much better alternative than using jar pasta sauce.

    Wow!! This is really a good spaghetti sauce. I was looking for a sauce that would go with my friend's meatball recipe Recipe #463904<br/>. This was definitely it. I am not much for cooking with wine, but had a bottle of local red that I used. Glad I did, the wine was truly necessary in this rich sauce. I also cut the red pepper flakes and garlic in half as we don't do well with a lot of spices. This was perfect. Thanks so much for sharing!!
