    This is a signature dish at Hot Tomatoes restaurant in Hartford, Ct.(which was published in the Hartford Courant) The restaurant serves 15-20 gallons of Tort Rose sauce per night! It is yummy. and served with a tossed salad and some garlic bread, it's delicious

      This tastes IDENTICAL to Hot Tomatos in Hartford. I've made this numerous times and it's a household favorite. I use slightly less spinach that called for, but still tastes amazing.
