"I have been making this sauce for YEARS from an old Taste of Home edition. My daughter, a vegan, adores it and a friend doesn't even use spaghetti- she eats it out of a bowl by itself! It freezes well and is great on manicotti, etc., as it doesn't smother the delicate flavors of all of the cheeses. It's low fat and a great way to use up your garden veggies. The only thing I did diferent is add more garlic and I accidentally used Port instead of Burgundy and it actually gave it a sweeter flavor."

"I made this 2 days after seeing it on line. I think it is very tasty and the addition of the vinegar gives it a subtle zing. Definitely a repeat dish."

"This is an absolutely amazing dish. It's a family favorite in our home, and whenever we serve it, there are no leftovers! I dish it up with some homemade crusty bread and a nice romaine salad but honestly, you can fill up on this alone."
