    THE BEST SAUCE EVER!!! In this case, what you put in is what you get. I purchased expensive organic heirloom tomatoes for this recipe, and I got exquisite flavor. Standard store bought tomatoes could not produce that kind of flavor, so I would not bother with those. Simple sauce, few ingredients, it does not get better than that! Thank you Martha.

    I made this for our family a couple nights ago. It certainly was easy to make, but we found it quite sour/tart and very watery. Our grandsons refused to eat it - and they will eat anything! I think I will try it again, but this time I will seed the tomatoes before throwing them in the food processor. I'll probably tweak the spices a bit, too.

    Made this last night. It was easy and wonderful. I did not have spaghetti so I used low-carb penne pasta instead. Definitely a keeper!

    I absolutely loved this. Easy, refreshing, yummy. I used low carbon rotini pasta and spooned the sauce over individual bowls. Topped it off with grated parmesan.. This is perfect for a light summer meal.

    This is the best sauce I have ever made, it's fresh, light and the right balance.

    I just made this tonight...it was delicious!!! Love this recipe, very easy to make and even my very picky husband loved it. Told me I can make it again anytime. The only thing I did different is use freeze dried parsley and basil, did 3 TBSP of Basil, 1 whole heirloom tomato and pulsed in the blender...it becomes more of a sauce that way...but loved it!!!!

    friends making me make this for them.

    We've made this a few times now. It is better when you let some but not all of the juices drain out (so the sauce is chunkier). I also like to put it in the hot pan after I've dumped the pasta out into a colander, to heat it up just for 30 seconds or so. So good!
