this is similar to my recipe only I add more garlic. However...where is the sugar? Tomato sauce without sugar or another sweetener (I actually add red wine to mine, let the alcohol cook off and the sugar remain) is way too tart and raw tasting.

Good solid recipe. She uses the basics like most Italians do, not overdoing it with spices. It could probably use more garlic, though.
