    So easy~ Excellent flavor. I ended up adding a little onion powder and used dried basil as I had no fresh on hand. It turned out well. I served it with tortellini.

    Made this for chicken parm and it was heavenly. My little baby had it with her spiralizedbutternut squash pasta and she couldn’t get enough of it either!

    I love this recipe. I had 30 ounces of homegrown Romas and used a can of whole tomatoes. So simple but so amazing in taste. I did add a little more basil and 2 more cloves of garlic. This will be my go to.

    This is really delicious and easy! I love that it has no added sugar. Only 1 point on WW per serving. I am going to use it to make baked penne tonight. Will definitely make again. It does take 50 minutes to make though, not 5. Second time I made it I decreased olive oil to 1 tsp. and made it in my crockpot (8 hours on low). 0 point sauce for WW!

    sause is nice, but it cooks for 45-50 minutes! Plan your cook carefully. 5 minutes on the page are misleading.

    I didn’t have fresh basil, so I used dried basil (and some oregano) from my garden. This turned out great!!! I will be making this again!

    Will make again but probably add grated cheese and fennel... felt like it was missing something.
    Really good, I would make it again

    The kind of flower you use can be modified very easily. I tried 2.5 cups of whole wheat and 1/2 cup of buckwheat.
