    Turned out terribly! Instead of using lemon, I used watermelon rind, and I ended up scalding the sauce to the bottom of the oven. Complete failure, and I can't believe they would publish this recipe!

      Sounds like you are the complete failure...watermelon rind? And where does the recipe call for an oven?

    This is the easiest and most excellent change to a tomato sauce for pasta. Its wonderful as a light summer dish paired with broccoli and shrimp! Nothing to change its superb the way it is! Great with any kind of pasta too....EXCELLENT!
