This was a delicious recipe and it was extremely easy to follow. The only thing I did dofferent was to add a little more tomato puree than was suggested. But it was very delicious and we will be having it again very soon!

Azpines, I've seen this recipe elsewhere and I think they usually call for English cheddar. I have not tried this recipe myself, but the legendary Miller has passed away and he can't tell you what he had in mind when he posted this recipe. I hope you do try this one, because so many of his recipes are fabulous.

This sounds yummy. I plan to make it this week. I do have a question - what type of cheese do you suggest?
