The hubby's first comment after seeing the finished sauce: "That looks really hearty." Good to hear about a meatless dish!
This makes enough for 4 to 5 'normal' size servings. What's normal? I don't really know. I just know that we eat two servings the first time I make it. The hubby gets lunch the next day. And enough for a meal for two goes into the freezer. It holds up well in the freezer if you use it within a month or two.
