"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."

"This is a very good recipe! I would recommend adding a bit more beef broth so it is not so thick - maybe 1 1/2 cups. Also, you may need to stir it while it's simmering occasionally!"
