The recipe calls for tomato sauce, but in the text it says tomato soup. Is it soup, or sauce that you should use in this recipe?

My guess is either one but personally, I would go with the sauce.

I make mine with diced tomatoes--I think you should use soup to be close to this Amish way of making them.

The Amish I know do not use canned tomato soup.
