    My favorite is the Best Marinara Yet on this site. This one is good too, just a little plain and my fiance said too tangy.  -  16 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was very disappointed in this sauce. A few more herbs would make the difference I think. I probably won't make it again.  -  25 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is great if you add 3 chopped chicken breast to sauce  -  26 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
