“This thick, hearty sauce satisfies my pasta-loving husband much more than store-bought kind. For a change of pace, I add ground beef or Italian sausage. It's also good with black olives, mushrooms and green peppers.” —Jennifer Stephens, Pearland, Texas

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 26, 2012

I ended up using all oregano instead of 1/2 oregano 1/2 basil because I was out of basil but it was really really good. The spices in it are strong but it tasted really good on angel hair pasta.
