This man has seen you through thick and thin, so show him how important he is by preparing the most important meal of the day for him. Gather the rest of your family to help with the prep work for this Father’s Day recipe.

Cooking Tips

  • Canned tomatoes can be used instead of fresh. Choose lower sodium varieties and drain well before using.
