“This is a wonderful recipe that I came across on another recipe site. I've modified it slightly to fit my tastes. This sauce is great served over pasta or dirty rice. This recipe is one I typically make for dinner parties or potlucks so it serves a crowd, but it can easily be cut down to a family appropriate amount.”
