Seriously, if you haven't tried the recipe, why comment negatively? In most parts of the world, canned tomatoes are superior to fresh for 11 months out of the year. So using canned tomatoes is NOT tantamount to using Ketchup. Also, the tomato paste is simply concentrated tomato puree so adding the tomato paste adds the depth of flavor that you'd usually get with three hours of cooking. The recipe was intended to give you an idea of what to cook on a Tuesday night when you're exhausted and don't have the energy to cook or when you have to get dinner on the table in less than an hour without resorting to takeout or processed food. I think the phrase "don't knock it until you've tried it" applies here.

Zoomo, it is hard to take your recipe advice seriously considering all the misspelled words.

Oregano is for pizza sauce. This is not Spaghetti sauce. Add some cilantro and tobacco, you'll have salsa.
