"Absolutely outstanding ! And, get this, it is so easy to cut the recipe down for just one or two, which I did. And, I had no fresh tomatoes so I just used some tomato sauce, added when I added the water, just before bringing the mixture to a boil. From one field editor to another, a real thumbs up !!"
