    Is it possible that you could add some type of sauce like ragu sauce along with the tomato paste and if so, how much would you be able to put in.

    Awesome! So good!

    However, step 1 wasn’t too clear; perhaps a typo where it said: 1 tbs of olive oil, and 2 tsp on to boil. “2 tsp on?” I don’t get it. So, I just improvised here. –Thanks!
