    This was superb tasting, easy, quick, and made a beautiful presentation. I felt like a professional chef putting it out on the table. I added some sliced fresh baby bella mushrooms and replaced the fresh plum tomatoes with a 28 oz can of seasoned diced tomatoes (maybe 3/4 of the can). Fantastic!  -  01 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe has had really good reviews, but it has no seasonings at all, not even a little salt. I prepared it exactly as the recipe was written, tasted it after simmering for 10 minutes, and it just tasted like the canned tomato sauce. To salvage our dinner, I then added a link of italian sausage, a little basil, oregano, salt & pepper, and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Sorry, I won't be making this again.  -  29 Sep 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    WOW!!!! I agree, this is the best and fastest tomato sauce I have ever made or eaten in any restaraunt!! I changed just a couple of things, calamta olives instead of regular black olives, and I added 1 large Italian Sausage, browned and crumbled. Crazy Good. Thanks for the recipe, it is now my family's #1 recipe.  -  06 Jun 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
