The sauce was an easy and fast sauce to whip up. I did not use penne noodles. I had purchased some pumpkin filled raviolis at the Italian market in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and wanted a sauce to go with them. This sauce is savory but very tasty..... Read more

The sauce was an easy and fast sauce to whip up. I did not use penne noodles. I had purchased some pumpkin filled raviolis at the Italian market in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and wanted a sauce to go with them. This sauce is savory but very tasty. The sauteed onions really enhance the experience. Funny thing is we loved the sauce, but the raviolis were just okay. They were rescued by this amazing sauce. Thanks for posting.
