I don't know about sweeter and richer. It does lessen the acidity of the tomato taste, though. I've
posted the suggestion here a number of times, having read about it here a long time ago. I do it.
Mustn't use much, though. A pinch into the simmering sauce, stir, and watch it bubble up. I haven't
tried the milk thing.
