    very easy.Pasta is extremely versatile. try it.  -  14 Nov 2008


    I found this,a bit bland.Added seasoning,but still felt it lacked something.Nevertheless it's easy,and complete with garlic bread it's ok.  -  17 Feb 2015


    This was quite a good base, but I modified it a bit. I used only 1 can of tomatoes, doubled the garlic and wine (so I simmered it a little while longer - uncovered - to boil off some liquid. About 20 minutes all together). I also added basil and crushed red pepper while sauteing the onion and garlic... this added to the flavor a lot. Very easy to make and really delicious. I will definitely make it again. Thanks for the recipe!  -  25 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
