"It sounds delicious and I will be trying it with some modifications. This recipe gets a fail for the low-sodium category. My husband is recovering from a heart attack and the guidelines for anyone over age 50, regardless of heart health is 1500 mg of sodium a day. Under age 50 2000/daily. This recipe could easily be made more heart friendly by using Hunt's no sodium tomato sauce instead of the incredibly higher sodium tomato juice. The other lower sodium modification I will try is my own italian seasonings and Diamond Crystals salt sense versus a pre-packaged seasoning mix. Again, most of these mixes and high in sodium content."
