    This recipe serves as an excellent base. I sauteed garlic and onion in butter before adding the sauce and butter. When the sauce was done, I turned off the heat and stirred in 1/2 cup cream and 2 tbsps chopped cilantro. Now that was yummy, not only did the kids like it but the grown ups too!  -  28 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was interesting. As the recipe is it didn't have much taste so I added some garlic, a little sugar (it was bitter) and a little Italian seasoning. Not bad for sauce you make in five minutes.  -  17 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I will never buy ready made sauce again! This is a wonderful sauce or use it as a base as I did. I browned some Italian sausage. Removed from the pan and added some stir-fry veggies and the butter. When tender, added the tomato sauce. Then added the sausage and pasta. No need to add any salt or other spices, which are all in the sausage. It was so good!  -  27 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
