Very Good Recipe! I didn't use wine cause I didn't have any, and I don't know if that's what caused it not to thicken up, but it came out more like an etouffee/gumbo, so I made some brown rice to go with it. Still turned out really good tho! Thanks for the recipe!
Great Recipe! My mother in law and I fixed this for dinner and it turned out great. I also added a little cream at the end. We served it over basmati rice. We'll make this again! Thanks for sharing your recipe with us!
I am eating the leftover as I type. This was the 2nd time I made this and this is my favorite! The first time I used diced tomatoes (everything else the same), the 2nd time crushed. Either one is great. I also added alittle cream right before serving. Too Good!
