"I have used this a number of times over the years. Depending upon what I use it for, I tweak it. For spaghetti, I add 1/2 lb of Italian sausage and 1 cup red wine, nixing the red pepper flakes. For..." See more sloppy joes, I make it a bit soupier, not cooking it down so much. For chili, I add back in the pepper flakes and add toasted chilis and chili powder. It uses are as limitless as your imagination."
"Gonna be generous and go with 5 stars. Ok, here we go: first of all, the taste is great. I have some comments, why does the recipe state to divide the onions and garlic? I can't see what you do with t..." See morehem later that would require dividing them. Also, I like to have diced tomatoes in my sauce (personal preference) so I wish that this was different. I think that a large onion should be specified. I think the red pepper flakes were maybe a bit much for this sauce. Overall though, great recipe and yes, very versatile! Easily customizable to suit the individual; spices can be tweaked. This recipe has been out there since 2002 and only 2 reviews..... why??? Great recipe that needs to get more exposure."
