Thank you! This simple, yet amazing, recipe made me a bona fide kitchen stud to my wife ... I now make it regularly and it's perfect everytime.
Easy and delicious ,liked the way the soda bought it all together!
Delicious. My first "baking soda" red sauce. I was careful to add no more than a level teaspoon and it cut the acidity nicely. My Italian brother in law had seconds!
One of the best Italian sauces! So easy to make. I use Peeled San Marzano tomatoes and use my immersion blender to crush them while in the pot. These tomatoes have the best flavor. I used less ...
This recipe was easy to follow! I didn't read correctly to see it was 2 cans of 32 oz so I had 2 cans of 24 oz crushed tomatoes. The sauce still came out really good. I added way too much basil ...
