Hi All, firstly i am not a good cook at all, so please do not rely on my best intentioned feedback here. I cooked the "Special Spag Bolognase" exactly to the recipe, but unfort I was rather disappointed. I expected a much 'redder / tomato' flavored meal than i got. i was hoping for something more like i would normally get at our local Italian restaurant, but unfortunately that was not the case. I suggest 2 tins of the chopped tomatoes, some mixed spices, tomato puree, and no carrot. Can anyone else advise ? Thanks.
