    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.

    It’s pretty good, nothing special. I forgot the balsamic vinegar but it’s still good.

    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

    Like the recipe, but I add more basil and herbs. And, ground turkey.

    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.
