    Used different ingredients. I used a can of chopped tomatoes instead of the passata, just because I always have some handy. I used a masher to break it down and it worked fine, maybe just a little chunkier, but that's okay.  -  04 Aug 2008


    I made this sauce today, and it's really nice quick and simple to make. It does make a lot, but as Sal says, good to freeze and have it on hand.  -  15 Sep 2012
