    This was a really great recipe, but I suggest only using 1 (28 oz) can, 7 yields so much that you could feed 20 people! But I use this sauce now for spaghetti and such too, thank you! It's very easy and excellent S  -  02 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    good recipe. I too, cut down the quantity as it made too much. I adjusted the preparation of the pasta by draining it while it was still quite al dente and then putting it in a hot non-stick frying pan with the amount of sauce that I wanted. I heated it through for about a minute and the pasta took on more of the flavour of the sauce. (grandma's trick)  -  26 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Super easy with wonderful results. Cooked it for my family and they loved it. I added some olives though, for a tangier taste. All in all, a good recipie. Thank You, Holly! :0)  -  16 Aug 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
