Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • Omit or decrease the red pepper flakes if they are too hot for your taste! Add some pepper to taste, if needed, if you omit the red pepper flakes.
  • The next time I make this, I would use a bit less water (to make it less soupy) and double the amount of tomatoes (to add more color, texture and taste).
