      So delicious and perfect for a Lenten meal! I doubled this recipe, using one full can of Cento tomato paste, and Cento San Marzano tomatoes. I typically use the best tomatoes I can find when preparing a dish such as this which features tomato. I did decrease the olive oil by 1/4, and also used 2 t. of red pepper flake and passed it at the table for those that wanted to spice it up. I loved the fresh tomato flavor of this sauce and will definitely make it again!

      Thank you for sharing this awesome recipe kate. It was quick and very easy, using ingredients that I always have on hand, but best of all it tasted great and the picky dh loved it. Made for Culinary Quest 2014 for the Suitcase Gourmets.
