This is one of those recipes you can add chunks of ham, sausage, diced potatoes, and spice it to your own taste. Sometimes, I use crushed tomatoes instead of sauce, and it gives it a fresher tomato flavor. Whichever way you like it, I'm sure you'll enjoy it. Make it your own, friends, and have fun in the kitchen!
