This is my "mema's" recipe and we just LOVE it! She also told us that if tomato puree is not available we can: OMITT WATER and use three 8 oz cans tomato sauce OR Use the Original ½ cup water plus an additional 6 oz. water, one 6 oz. can tomato paste and one 8 oz can tomato sauce.



Outstanding recipe! I cannot say enough good things about this recipe. It was easy to prepare and tastes great. What else would you want? I used a can of diced tomatoes and thought it was just fine instead of using the tomato puree. Served with Pork Chops with Jalapeno Jelly, Lemon Pepper Zucchini and Pride Cabernet Franc. Yummy meal. Plan to serve again at a dinner party.



I made this for my father, who is a total tomato lover. He absolutely loved it. I even saw him going back for thirds! I tried it myself, not being a huge tomato fan and even I liked it. I think I'll be making this quite often!
