Really good flavor, but I found it too sweet. I would cut the sugar in half next time. Also, the sauce is a bit too watery for lasagne, so I added some tomato paste to thicken it up.

This was way too sweet and the vinegar was too much. I added tomato paste, basil, oregano and beef broth to try to thicken the sauce and cut the vinegar and sugar. I will not make this again.
