    Love watching Mary Ann! I make a killer sauce but would really love to find a great sauce without all the work. I do not believe DelGrosso products are available around here. Believe me, I would be the first to try it.

    I like to have a special sauce for a quick meal. One needs something quick after a long day in the garden or when involved with other culinary activities for other events.

    I have been following your page for quite some time. I love and make most recipes even though I am making them for one. When I have guests or am cooking for my girlfriend, I try only your recipes and they all enjoy. I enjoy making my own sauce but would love the convenience of having a good quality jar sauce.

    Hello Mary Ann,
    I've been making homemade pasta using your recipe and a hand crank pasta machine I picked up at a tag sale. Before I got my Grandmothers rolling pin, I used a wine bottle to roll out the pasta. Can't believe how wonderful fresh made pasta tastes and I make my own sauce on Sundays just like family tradition requires. Blessings to you and your Famiglia.
