OH SO GOOD! Who knew such a simple dish could be so tasty. Restaurant quality! I used fresh tomatoes from my garden instead of canned. 2 cups of fresh diced tomatoes substitute for 1 can. Used chicken tenders and doubled the sauce to put over pasta as suggested. The smell is delicious and the sauce is so rich a creamy and fresh tasting. Yummy! A recipe to keep and use often. Thank you!!
