    So freaking amazing, I made it without onions because I and the rest of my siblings are are kinda picky eaters and I didn't have tomato paste so I subbed it for a can of condensed tomato soup. I had fresh parsley from my itsy-bitsy garden. Put it on top of ravioli, the tomatoes were so sweet. Yummm - 7/13/11

    I'm so glad you've got this recipe on SP! I make it without the cayenne, though. So much more tasty than store-bought! - 6/19/09
