Found this, again over on TOH Recipes!! A gal from NJ was the one who shared it. One of the gals over their ranted and raved about it, so I just knew I had to give it a try. My paste tomatoes are starting to really produce now, so this is definitely finding it's way onto my menu in the next week or two!!
