I had good intentions of posting this recipe with photos...or at least a photo of the finished product for Katie. All I managed was one photo of the sauce. So sad.
It's really yummy! I found the recipe in a Contadina advertisement several years ago, which is why it includes so many Contadina items. However, my little grocery store does not carry all of those items, so I have to stray to other brands.
