    This sounds yummy, and I haven't had a chance to try it yet - but it's verbatim from the Betty Crocker website.

    This was really good. I didn't have any diced tomatoes and DH doesn't like them anyway so I used 2 cans of tomato sauce. After adding the sugar (I only added half) it was just too sweet for my taste so I added another can of tomato suace and it was perfect. Thanks!!

    I ended up unexpectedly feeding this to company and they loved it! Very simple to throw together and tasty too. Next time I think I will use the diced tomatoes with green chilis for a little extra kick. Thanks for another easy great recipe Lainey!
