"Made this for dinner for my husband and I.i thought the beef broth taste was very overwhelming.i won't be making this again."

"Very good, not as fast as using jarred sauce, but it tastes ten times better. I doubled the recipe and added half a bay leaf and a can of drained diced tomatoes. The clear advantage here is using one pot to make the dish, a definite time saver. I like this and may abandoned jarred sauce altogether."
