I felt the sauce was really sweet on it's own but I didn't balsamic vinegar.

Everyone loved it. Added tuna for one, vegetables for another and left the rest plain. Easy to make and empty plates afterwards. Perfect.

Good tomato-based sauce. The sweetness of the roasted peppers and onion prevented the often bitter tomato. I added garlic during the roasting and a splash of balsamic near the end.

This is a really lovely sauce. I added garlic to the roasting vegetables and balsamic vinegar and chilli powder just before serving and it was delicious. Definitely a keeper!
