  1. Hi Julia.
    I made this the other night and found that there was way too much tomato paste. I have a hunch that you used a 6 oz. can not an 8 oz. in the video but called and wrote it as 8 oz.
    Is that possible? I think it would have been good but since I doubled the recipe, I used at total of 16 oz. of tomato paste and it was way too much.
    Love your videos and recipes otherwise ๐Ÿ™‚
