      i didn't enjoy the taste of the sauce with just the tomato paste, so i added a lot more salt, 1/3 cup of white wine, a teaspoon of dried italian seasonings, a tablespoon of sugar, and a five ounce can of tomato puree. this also made it taste a lot less metallic. despite the sauce, the manicotti mix was VERY good. thank you a lot!
