This sauce is best suited for use in another recipe (such as for spaghetti sauce) and not just put on pasta as-is. The fresh basil was nice in this -love basil and tomato together- recommend garden fresh tomatoes in this as they are THE most important item in this recipe. A touch of balsamic would be a great addition as well I don't understand the egg in this? It changed the pretty red sauce to a murky color. I think it may be better without.
