  1. This looks good! The directions don’t mention when to add the water and white wine. At the beginning of step 6? Also when are the tomatoes added? Sautéed with onion and garlic?

    • You are right, I accidentally remove one step from the description! You use the wine to simmer the tomatoes sauté, then add the water after everything’s mixed. I’ve added these details now, thanks for noticing!
