    This sauce is delicious! I added crushed red pepper, and might add some other fun things the next time I make it, but I definitely will enjoy this again!

    The celery and sugar turned me off. Just two flavors that don't belong in spaghetti sauce.

    super easy to make! Made a whole lot of sauce we had plenty left over. it could feed about 10 people. It was just a bit Sweet so we had to add lots of salt.

    I made this fantastic sauce for my 3rd grader’s birthday party. I also had pizza for the girls, but they couldn’t get enough of this sauce and we had a lot of leftover pizza. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this sauce was received. For flavor, I roasted the onion and peppers, and added two medium carrots as well, and then ran all of the vegetables through my food processor for texture reasons for the pickier kids.
