      I used a leftover of diced tomatoes that I had in the fridge instead of tomato puree. I added 1 tsp of dried basil. I didn't use salt and pepper. This dish has a great taste. And it's so easy to do. Thanks MollyLin :) Made for New Kids on the Block tag game

      Delightful dish! I loved the flavors and the use of the beef broth really gave it a different twist with the puree. I did add a bit more garlic and Italian seasoning after taste testing. It was a huge hit with all the family and I love how it really stretches a dollar for costs per serving. I spent about $8 for 6 servings - GREAT! Thanks for posting this new recipe!
