Top Review by Andrea G.

Wow--this was fantastic! I followed the recipe to a "T" using 1 large (1 lb 12 oz) can of diced tomatoes. I cooked for about an hour I would say, then refrigerated overnight and reheated the next day. I wonder if this gave time for the flavors to meld, because it was delicious. I served it with homemade naan, recipe 203261. Even my hubby, who is an avid meat-eater, loved it and said it was better than anything he's tasted at a restaurant. Would DEFINITELY make this again!
