I messed up at the grocery and bought chili sauce instead of chili paste, but I made the recipe anyway. It turned out awesome. I was worried about the heat and the chile sauce solved that issue. I was able to adjust the heat just to our taste with the red pepper. The chile sauce gave the tomatoes a little sweeter taste which went nice with the heat from the pepper. My husband thought this was an awesome dish. I did add extra tomatoes based on other reviews and the amount of sauce came out nicely. I served it with asparagus, a salad and bread.
