“I have a really old Hunt's recipe book, the pages are falling out of it but this is a favorite of mine in this book. I am putting her for safe keeping in case I lose this page. The recipe calls for tomato sauce with tomato bits in it, but I never find that kind anymore. So I just use the regular tomato sauce.”
