My friend Alison doesn't think she can cook, but she had me over one night for dinner and fixed this wonderful meal, thus proving herself very wrong. It's very hearty and the flavours get even better the next day. Since I'm allergic to shrimp she left it out for me, and I don't make the dish with shrimp either, but this is the recipe as she gave it to me in it's entirety. Goes very well with a loaf of crusty bread.
