I made this tonight, for me and DD. I made it as written, except for using no salt added tomato sauce. We thoroughly enjoyed it. This dish is easily made due to the simplicity of the ingredients. They are always on hand in my pantry. It will also lend itself well to add ins of various veggie and meats. This recipe will go into my For Two Cookbook, to be made many times, here. Thanks Redneck, for such a tasty and versatile recipe. May your eternal rest be undisturbed.
