    This was fantastic! I did make some minor adjustments to the recipe. I used one 14 oz. can diced tomatoes and one 14 oz. can of tomato puree instead of the 28 oz. jar of pasta sauce. I used cream instead of half and half, and I added 1 Tbsp. of sugar. We served it over cheese tortellini and it was delicious!  -  14 Feb 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Yum. I could eat this sauce with a spoon. Very delicious. I used heavy whipping cream since that is what I had, and then tossed it with 24 ozs cooked spaghetti. Think next time I will use less spaghetti so that it is saucier. I wanted to dip my bread in this. Will definately make again!  -  19 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Winner Dinner! What a easy & wonderful tasting sauce. I used Classico Traditional Sweet Basil sauce. I loved the hint of nutmeg in the sauce (I used fresh grated nutmeg, so it may have been a bit stronger). Teamed with Fast & Friendly Meatballs from this site for a family pleasing meal.  -  20 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
