This was a breeze to make when I just had a few minutes to get out the door to work. Simmered in the crock pot all day and was so thick & rich after adding the flour and water. I used the can of diced tomatoes...salt, pepper, and lawrys.... it was absolutely delicious. Served it on top of egg noodles. A real hit.
