    Roma tomatoes may be used in place of the canned I would however suggest to blanch the tomatoes and remove the peel before using in the recipe.

      This is going down as one of my all time favorite recipes. Absolutely phenomenal. As my husband said this recipe is "special" but it is incredibly simple to make. We might just have this weekly! My only complaint was that there was not enough!
