"This recipe uses 8 ounce cans of tomato sauce and the cans are now 7 ounces each so it's going to be short 2 ounces. Make sure you rinse out the cans with a bit of water to ramp it up a little. They didn't bake the recipe but the school would have to hold temperature and it would effect the recipe so I did. 1 tablespoon of garlic powder is a lot start with, 1 teaspoon...add more if you like."
