This looks like a regular tomato pasta sauce at first glance but it's actually sweet instead of tart or spicy. A delicious difference!
Loved it. I didn't have some things, so I improvised. Used fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. I didn't have green pepper,so I left it out. I took the advice of other reviews and cut the sugar down. I added two tablespoons at a time, and it tasted right after about 6 tablespoons of sugar. I will make this again. - 23 Sep 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Followed recommendations and cut the sugar (1/2 cup), but it was still too sweet. Also, I used fresh garlic because it's much more flavorful than the powder. Might try this recipe again, but I'll add 2 TBS of sugar, wait 10 minutes and taste. Then I'll add 1 TBS of sugar and repeat till it tastes "just right". - 21 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I made this sauce tonight for my family. My husband always says that my spaghetti sauce is missing something and he isn't sure what...until I made this sauce! He tasted it and said that all it needed now was pasta! Thank you for sharing this recipe. I did use only 1/4 c. sugar; minced garlic; fresh oregano; and instead of the tomato sauce, I used a 28oz can of 'chunky crushed tomatos w/ basic, garlic and oregano plus one small can of plain tomato sauce and the tomato paste and a vermouth cooking wine. - 19 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
