This is a very good base recipe, but in my opinion, needs a little tweaking to make it really good. Changes I made: used 2 cloves of garlic, added a tablespoon of Italian seasoning, used an extra tablespoon of tomato paste, and towards the end, mixed about 1/3 c of red wine with 2 tsp. of cornstarch to thicken. I don't know how this affects point values: I made it 6 pts. instead of 5.
