This recipe is excellent as-is. A couple of adjustments that my husband and I also enjoy: adding 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning and a zucchini (quartered lengthwise and sliced) at the stage where you add the bay leaf. Also, I like to add 1/2 cup fresh-grated Parmesan with the beef and garlic. It absorbs as the beef cooks. Later, I still add grate"

Excellent. Just what I wanted: creamy, flavorful, and easy. I used the recipe as-is without any changes and will be making it again."

Delicious sauce and very easy. For the salt part, I added 1 teaspoon of coarse Kosher salt. I used the grocery store's brand of canned tomatoes that said "San Marzano style."

This made for a delicious dinner tonight. Since we like spicy food, I used two unseeded chipotle peppers. Other than that, I followed the directions exactly, and it turned out excellent. We topped our bowls with sour cream, and it was the perfect complement to the smokiness of the chili.

I was searching for a recipe for soft cinnamon rolls that uses the ingredients I already have on hand in the kitchen. This recipe was perfect and made soft, beautiful rolls. I used my 9x13" Pyrex baking dish and the 12 cinnamon rolls exactly filled it after rising and baking.
