It is a wee bit sweet but still very very good. You might want to spice it up on your own a little bit before eating. :) As for my husband and I, we loved it.

There is a great Barilla pasta coupon here:

This was too sweet and didn't have nearly enough herbs. Not that great, unfortunately.

This sauce is awesome! I actually used it for lasagna, but it would be great just with pasta as well. I used about a tsp. of Italian seasoning instead of the thyme/basil sprigs. This will be my go-to marinara sauce recipe!
