  4. This was an excellent , simple to make recipe.

  7. I substituted 28 oz. crushed tomatoes. Only 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes was spicy enough for us; I think 1 tsp. would have been atomic. I'd suggest adding a smaller amount of the crushed red pepper flakes to start tasting it & then adding the amount that you (& your family) would prefer. You - Read more ...
