    Great starter sauce!! Basically, this recipe gives you a good base and then you add extras depending on your tastes. I read some of the previous reviews and used less stewed tomatoes and added a can of tomato paste. I also added red pepper flakes for a nice kick and a pinch more sugar. NOTE: You absolutely have to simmer this for 3-4 hours, minimum. I tried a taste after about an hour and was disappointed. I waited four hours later and was blown away by how much difference the simmering made. A definite winner!!  -  21 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
