Top Review by Marie

This is the last recipe I tried in the "Pick Your Chef" contest. I think the weight of the cans is wrong in this recipe so this is what I used - 1 28 oz can tomatoes, 1 6 oz can tomato paste and 1 8 oz can tomato sauce. I also used just a pinch of sugar and cooked it for only about 1 1/2 hours. This is really good. I'm glad I chose you for my chef, Kerry. Thanks.
