      Made this last night for dinner for my roommate, her sis, her friend & me. Very herby was one comment. I myself would of preferred more "zest" to it. A bit bland but good for a basic sauce though after simmering for an hour, it still kind of tasted like it did when I tried it before simmering. Would make again but add some italian sausage. Thanks!
