    This is my adaption of a New Orleans classic. This is made without a heavy roux which makes it a little healthier.

      I actually had everything ask for except the Ro-Tel. In it's place I used canner diced tomatoes and canned Ortega green peppers. My okra was frozen but it did the job just fine. I went ahead and made the full recipe because I wanted to freeze several servings for the cold weather. As Ev said, it's not difficult to put together and the time to make it is well worth it. It tastes delicious and I love the low fat. :D

      This was very tasty and much easier to make than the long list of ingredients would have you believe. Paula's instructions are excellent and cover all the bases. I scaled this recipe to half and we all enjoyed this tasty dinner.
