This was very good and easily prepared, a simple sauce with lots of depth. I DID cut the sugar back a lot, I put maybe a tsp sugar, this is probably personal taste. Lovely, thank you for sharing

What a treat! It has been ages since I made this much sauce and it won't be that long again. This is fabulous and so easy! The garlic just pops but not overwhelms. I did cut sugar in half as I usually by Prego No Sugar sauce but felt I needed a bit to cut acid. Absolutely the bomb!
