"A nice change from standard spaghetti sauce. I think next time we will omit the noodles and use it as a topper over tortilla chips for a fun dinner."

"I love this because I can add whatever I have in my pantry and it comes out delicious every time. I like to substitute a big piece of corn bread and top it with sharp cheddar."
