I baked for 2 1/2 hours to maximize the "sun dried tomato" flavor I didn't have to drain any juice off the top this way. As other reviewer suggested added a touch of balsamic. Absolutely delicious!! Read More

I can't give 4 1/2 stars so 5 stars it is. Here are my notes to take this over the top. This needs just a touch of Balsamic Vinegar to make it perfect! Make it at least a day ahead of time to let the flavors meld - drain the tomato juice off the top so it stays thick like a spread should be. Delicious! Read More

I added basil to the recipe. This is my base for spaghetti sauce. Love the garlic smells while it roasts in the oven. My family LOVES this sauce. Read More
