"This recipe was super easy to make; to say it takes even five minutes to prepare is a stretch! I was apprehensive about using ketchup, but was surprised there was no ketchup-y taste. The recipe is a great addition to our roster, especially when in a rush to prepare a meal. It wasn't too sweet or too tangy."
