One of the top 3 pasta sauces I have ever tasted. It tastes like a pasta sauce from one of the many authentic Italian restaurants on Mulberry Street in Little Italy, in New York City. I highly recommend. The only change I made to it was not adding the additional sugar. The canned tomatoes have plenty of sugar in them already which made for the slightest hint of natural sweet. PERFECT!
