"I made this for New Year's Eve. Followed the recipe exactly & it came out just like the photo-but I was a bit disappointed with it. Some guests enjoyed it, some I think didn't as they didn't go back for seconds. Husband commented yuck. I wasn't a big fan either, would rate it as just okay, not worth the effort.

"I've made this twice now with only the slightest tweaks (added a couple teaspoons of 'Italian Seasoning' mix from our co-op). It's absolutely perfection. Rich, just spicy enough to add interest, and no acid overload. I'm not a fan of tomato-based sauces, but I love this. So did my husband." - p g.8256
