    Just like the Italian Restaurants in New York City. I added 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, and 1 tablespoon dried basil for perfection. My family begs for it all the time!!!  -  31 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Oh dang... I just about ate this whole pot by myself. Wonderful sauce!! I did have to add about a tablespoon of sugar to counteract the tartness from the tomatoes, and like antoher reviewer added a bit of oregano, parsley and basil to set it just right. Definitely worth the calories. Good Recipe.  -  10 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have been searching far and wide for a GREAT vodka sauce and this one is it! Only thing is that I made a mistake when making it! I only added ONE can of crushed tomatoes instead of two and it came out creamy and awesome! I also added chopped pancetta or proscuitto when I was browning the onions - this one is a keeper!  -  01 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
