Kittencal, This was delicious! Easy and has its own distinct taste. (Not Italian...no red pepper flakes) We really enjoyed it. Dottie5
Delicious! This was wonderful! Used diced tomatoes (drained) and used white wine instead of red(as I had a bottle opened). Served it on rice. Enjoyed by all! Thanks Kit!
