    Different, but probably won't make again. I think the name just throws me (spaghetti sauce) because I couldn't get pass the idea that spaghetti sauce is cooked in our house. I thought of this as more of a starter for salsa.  -  29 Sep 2008


    This was very good, fresh tasting, and a good use for all of the Roma tomatoes from my garden last summer. I plan to make it again this summer!  -  29 Sep 2008
