My mother inspired me to develop my first pasta sauce. It's tangy, simple and really satisfying. The longer it simmers, the better it gets, so keep that in mind if you have time to spare. —Danielle Grochowski, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"This meal was awesome, the family and i love pasta/meat meals. I did use the dry red wine (Big California Cab.Sav.) and used less of the sugar and the Italian seasoning. Thank you for your first pasta meal."

"I love this sauce!!! It is very tasty and light. I made this with leftover cooked turkey instead of the grilled chicken. I doubled the sauce to use some on the pasta. Definitely a keeper. Thank you!"
