I think this recipe is wonderful. I have recently moved from the US to a small asian country where a jar of spaghetti sauce costs more than 5 US dollars. Tomatoes on the other hand are about ten cents a pound. I use a couple cloves of garlic instead of garlic powder and fresh hot chiles instead of the seasoning. This recipe has been a life-saver and everyone loves it. It is so easy as well! Thank you! Read More

This was a good and simple recipe that easily uses up lots of leftover tomatoes from the garden. I did find the amount of black pepper suggested to be a bit much however. Was it really supposed to be 1.5 tablespoons or 1.5 teaspoons? Next time I will reduce the amount of pepper. Read More

We used organic farmer's market tomatoes (red and yellow) in this recipe and it was to die for! Used red chopped red onion (more like a 1/4 a cup) and left out the sugar. PERFECT chicken and pasta topper! Read More

This was easy and tastes great. The ingredients are fool proof. I added half a red onion (sautéed with garlic and butter) and used a mix of tomatoes from the garden (red yellow green). I also used brown sugar and fresh herbs (liberal amounts). I had plenty to freeze for the winter. I took out a cup to use as bruschetta after about 15 minutes of cooking time. Read More

I cannot find anything wrong with this. I didn't measure anything but I went by the ingredient list almost to a "t" adding dried basil & rosemary. I really like this it's fool proof and right on the mark for a home made pizza. It's not "off the charts" but well worth it. Read More
