Made as written and this turned out pretty good. The one thing I didn't like was the ketchup. The carrots made the dish plenty sweet enough. I'll leave it out next time. Other than that great recipe! Read More

Tried as written, and the wine was overpowering. Tried thickening with cornstarch and an 8 ozcan of tomato sauce, but the flavor of the wine was still a bit much. Suggest trying this with less wine and water, and more basil. Read More
