Excellent! I added fresh basil & doubled the garlic.

This sauce is sweeter than I like. Of course, next time I can reduce the sugar but does anyone have any idea what I can do for this completed batch to reduce the sweet taste?

This is a great sauce! I used two different types of garden fresh tomatoes and loved the flavors. I also cut the recipe into thirds and made a third of the recipe and it worked great-just reduce the cooking times by a third too!

MY REVIEW

This recipe is hands down the BEST spaghetti sauce recipe for using up garden tomatoes! I run it thru the blender, so that my kids don't complain about the tomato chunks.
