No need to carefully measure ingredients here, just add to your taste bud's content--that's the beauty and fun of true cooking! I prepared this pretty much as directed using a good brand of canned San Marzano tomatoes (the best!) and added a glug of Chianti to the sauce. The aroma was mmmm, so good, and the dish itself was delicious, flavorful and the perfect accompaniment to the "Grilled Marinated Shrimp" I served with it. As an Italian gal used to Italian cooking and food, I can tell you this combination of typical Italian ingredients is pretty good stuff!

This was EXCELLENT! This had so many great flavors going on and everything went well together. Wonderful blend of textures too. I used the bacon grease and a splash of olive oil to sautee the onions, peppers, and garlic in. I used sun dried tomatoes instead. I cut this down to a couple of servings and it came out perfectly. I highly recommend this dish, it is fantastic.

this dish was so good and so easy to prepare. i didn't bother with cleaning the skillet after frying the bacon...i just used the bacon grease and threw the rest of the ingredients in the same skillet. i also added basil and a splash of dry white wine and omitted the bell pepper (not a favorite here). i didn't even bother measuring the ingredients...this is pretty much a no-fail recipe. i tossed the sauce with angel hair pasta and it was simply perfect!
