Recipe question for: Cajun Meat Loaf

Hi sedgwitch--yes, you know when I wrote up the recipe, I was reading a lot about BPA lining in metal cans and was using boxed products only (and still do unless I know the can is BPA-free) so that's why I recommended Pomi. But the truth is, I've been making that meatloaf for about 20 years--you can use any tomatoes you like.

There are minor differences between canned / boxed tomato brands. I believe Pomi doesn't have added salt so if you're substituting a brand that does, I'd taste before adding the specified amount.

You can! There's no difference between the canned stuff and what drbabs had in boxes, just a matter of preference.
