    This was very good, especially with it being lower fat, no complaints from my kids. That is saying a lot too, my kids are the "mom what's this red thing?".

    I haven't eat over my pasta yet, but I can tell you it is delicious. I keep scraping my skillet for a little taste. I kind of messed up though, I too decided to use some canned diced tomatoes, but I used the entire 14.5 oz can. So I added a little extra flour, stock and cream cheese. I'm kind of glad I added too many tomatoes, it has a nice tomato flavor to it. I can't wait until my pasta is done and we get to really eat it. Thank you for posting, I have a feeling I'll be making this again!

    An easy and great recipe! i used canned diced tomatoes (about 7oz) instead of 2 roma tomatoes. A lot better and healthier than the one comes in a jar.

    Oh my goodness - what a great sauce, and so simple! I did have to make some variations though, much to my dismay, due to the unexpected realization that I was out of garlic! So, to start a base, I sauteed some onions with garlic powder. I left out the tomatoes because I was making this sauce for the Garlic Chicken Pizza (Recipe #136872). After adding the rest of the ingredients, I simmered it for quite because I wanted a thicker sauce for the pizza. I also added a touch more flour, too. Overall, great sauce!

    This recipe was delicious! I made it for a group of 6 and everyone loved it. My husband said it tasted better than the jarred sauce I normally use, plus it is lower in fat and calories- so that makes it a winner in my book! I will definitely be making this again. I also added some chopped onion while cooking the garlic and some parmesan romano cheese blend.
