I make a double batch and freeze for quick dinners on a … For a smoother sauce for picky kids (eyeing my own two), diced tomatoes can be replaced with two cans of tomato sauce.

Could this work in the Instant Pot? I have been telling everyone about it. Turned out fantastic. Another keeper. Thank you! Can this sauce be made without the meat and still come out tasting good?

Made with your divine breadsticks. Never done that before. Yes, I seed and core and stem the pepper. I just smiled and said “enjoy!” Thank you sweet Mel! Would I be able to make this and can it in a pressure canner and store it for awhile?
