This is what I said about the Hot Sicilian, but it is true for this sauce, too: I thought I must have lost my mind to do this, but this stuff is great. It is the perfect sauce. It doesn't overwhelm, it enhances, it lifts up plain ole spaghetti to something special. The tomatoes are naturally flavorful, it is not bitter, too sweet, too thin. It is just plain ole perfect. The heat in it could be enjoyed by those that don't prefer spicy, it is not overwhelming.
So many of the pasta sauces out there are loaded with sugar, so it was nice to have one without added sugar. Love the flavor and healthiness of this sauce. It is a little thin, so it might be a good idea to let it simmer a little longer than other sauces.
