I tried once to prepare roasted tomato sauce using my grandmother’s recipe but my husband and kids did not like the taste so I ordered their favorite sauce from http://www.hotsaucemall.com/. This recipe is simpler and I bet the taste will delight the members of my family, I will prepare it this evening and will come tomorrow with a response.
