  1. Sorry, Kathy. It’s supposed to be ½ cup of water. I just added it to the ingredients.
    Thanks for letting me know.
    All the best,
    Nancy

  2. Dorre it is enough water since this recipe also uses 1 can of tomato sauce. But, when finished, you could always add a bit more water, if desired.
    My best,
    Nancy
