I first sampled these at a bridal luncheon years ago. Now I frequently make them for our weekly neighborhood dinners.

    This was delicious. I hadn't paid attention to the amounts when I went to the store, so I only had 15 oz. of tomato sauce instead of 29. I thought it turned out great. I took it to a church fellowship and didn't bring any home.
