Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Pay attention to the "drink the wine" comment in Bob's recipe. Bob is my brother in law and a Catholic Deacon, also knows as the "Freakin Deacon". I have known my him since the day I was born. He is my Godparent's son and I think he meant more than 1/2 of a cup of wine (for the cook) unless he was thinking of communion! Also, you can find quality tomato paste in tubes at import stores. It's perfect for these situations where you need only a little bit.
