    It was easy and delish! I used 1.5 tsp of balsamic because 1 tsp was not enough, but 2 tsp was very strong. Would definitely make again, but add my own flair!

    I used half of the Balsamic and it was just perfect. Enough acidity. I like my sauce thicker so I add some canned tomato paste. Everyone loved it!!

    I used whole san marizano tomatoes and crushed them with my hands so the sauce was a bit more chunky. I also added more basil and a dash of onion powder. Thank you for sharing this recipe!It is the best homemade marinara!

    It's a decent sauce, but very bland as written. The balsamic vinegar made it a little too bitter for my tastes.

    So easy~ Excellent flavor. I ended up adding a little onion powder and used dried basil as I had no fresh on hand. It turned out well. I served it with tortellini.

    I love this recipe. I had 30 ounces of homegrown Romas and used a can of whole tomatoes. So simple but so amazing in taste. I did add a little more basil and 2 more cloves of garlic. This will be my go to.

    This is really delicious and easy! I love that it has no added sugar. Only 1 point on WW per serving. I am going to use it to make baked penne tonight. Will definitely make again. It does take 50 minutes to make though, not 5. Second time I made it I decreased olive oil to 1 tsp. and made it in my crockpot (8 hours on low). I added a can of diced tomatoes for a little chunkiness, added a dash of Italian seasoning, and a small pinch of red pepper flakes. 0 point sauce for WW!

    sause is nice, but it cooks for 45-50 minutes! Plan your cook carefully. 5 minutes on the page are misleading.
