      5 Stars for flavor! This sauce is truly delicious. It's very hearty with great ingredients that we love. The recipe did not state to cook covered or not, so we covered it and wound up having to add a bit of tomato paste to thicken it up before serving. We felt the intro mentioning 'Halloween' did not follow any reasoning as it's not a dish specifically designed to that holiday. Overall, although we had to add tomato paste to thicken up the sauce, the flavor is wonderful. :)
