The thought of making my own pasta sauce scared me. I know, I know ... it's such a simple thing to make. But I have a fear, a large fear of ... tomatoes. Crazy, I know. It's the fresh ones that make me squirm. I wish I liked them, I really do. But I do adore a good sauce. We use Emeril's marinara sauce, but have found it a bit too sweet to use for a baked italian dish like lasagna or ziti. I finally decided that I needed to suck it up, put my big girl apron on, and try to make a simple pasta sauce that we would love. I browsed a couple of recipes and found one that sounded pretty good. I have to admit, I saw the word "wine" in the ingredients list and I was sold. I'd like to share my version of the recipe with you - I made changes based on our likes and dislikes. It was a yummy success! Best dishes and yummy dreams!
