Personal Notes:
This recipe was a favorite of our granddaughters growing up. They liked to put extra sauce over rice or pasta so the sauce ingredients were usually doubled. The first time I tried the recipe, I did not have rice wine so rice vinegar was used as substitute. It tasted great so that's what was used from then on.
