This sauce was very good and easy, however I did skip the green pepers, and added meat and it still turned out good. Thanks for sharing your recipe, my family loved it!

Delicious! My boyfriend loved this sauce. I was so angry because the mushrooms I had went bad, so I had to leave them out. The sauce was great without them, though!

This is such an easy recipe! It came out wonderful and I used the sauce for eggplant parmigiana. Thank you for sharing!
