Very Delicious! I took "Kathy!!"'s advice and added salt to the sauce before serving. We, and our guests enjoyed it very much! Made this again tonight only I used sausage was a great way to spice it up a little bit!

This was a great meal so I'm giving 5 stars BUT everyone at the table added salt so I've made a note to myself to add 1/2 tsp salt to the sauce. I loved the texture that the tomatoes added. Also I used 1/2 cup milk and 1/2 heavy cream to make the dish a little richer for company. I will make this again. Thanks Jennygal.
