The editor needs to fix the "plum" problem, which I'm sure is supposed to be plum tomatoes. I would leave them out. I don't like to mix tomatoes with cream-based sauces.

It was very delicious! I would definitely make this recipe again. I would add more salt and seasoning next time. It is not a spicy seasoning, it has alot of favor to add. I'm not sure about the plum/tomatoes? I did not add either. That is the only thing I did different to the recipe.
