I added fresh chopped basil and 1/4 cup of sugar. I have five kids so it's hard to find recipes they all like. They all loved this!!!!!
just a classic. very easy and good
Thank you for a great recipe! My whole family loved this! I used sweet Italian sausage and dried minced onion. I did not bake this though. I was running a little behind on dinner and just threw this all together on the stove. It came out perfect! I will be making this again real soon!
