No one will believe that just three ingredients make up this tomato sauce that tastes like it bubbled away all day on top of the stove. It's that good. — Jennifer Eggert, Scottsdale, Arizona

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 6, 2015

"This was good, but needed a little sonethin' somethin'. I added a few shakes of Jane's Krazy Salt seasoning, but it needed something else. Next time I'll add more sausage, and some fresh garlic. Also, maybe some Better 'n Boullion will do the trick. Just maybe 1/2 a teaspoon or so. I'll make it again, but needs a bit of tweaking to make it awesome. Enjoyed the recipe, though."

MY REVIEW

"Did I miss something? I can only see 2 ingredients for the sauce - diced tomatoes and cream cheese. The recipe description says there are 3 ingredients. Is it meaning that the sausage or spinach is part of the sauce? That doesn't sound right to me."
