Don't usually write comments and reviews to recipes but decided to endorse this one. Made the sauce many times now and it is a hit with everyone. Takes 10-15 min to make (chop your onions and carrots really fine and cooking time is reduced), can keep in the fridge for a day. Plus there are vegetables hidden in it - in case someone is making it for a fussy eater.
