Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'm thinking I would rather have it hot??

This is delicious! I added Veggies : zucchini,summer squash,chopped broccoli, and instead of red onion I used a small sweet chopped onion.. blanched the vegetables and added to this dish. I served with saute'd chicken. DELISH!!

This is wonderful. I've made 3 batches since the show aired and have shared it with family. Everyone loved it, even a young person not too found of tomatoes.
