Good with lots of modifications. I used 8 oz of tomato sauce 4 oz of tomato paste 6 cups of chicken broth in substitution for water orange bell pepper 2 tsp of fresh thyme a pinch of cayenne pepper and a 1/4 cup of grated parmesean cheese. Not sure how she got her measurements. If I had only used 4 cups of liquid it would have dried up and burned within minutes. Made at least 8 servings.. Read More
