2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 can (1 lb) stewed tomatoes
1 tablespoon cornstarch

    I used to make this recipe often.i loved looking through those cards as a kids;they helped spark my love of cooking, which is my passion today. Then my mom got rid of those recipe cards. Tonight I wanted to make this. Partly because it’s a simple old school dish, but also for sentimental younger brother recently passed away after a lengthy illness. This was one of the home cooked meals he said he wanted. I didn’t get the chance to make it for him.I looked at other sites, but their versions weren’t the right one. This is THE ONE. Thank you
