Very good. I had to make some changes though. Had only a smaller can of diced tomatoes, so added a small can of V-8 juice. Had no cabbage, so added 6 potatoes instead (cut up). No bell pepper, nor lemon juice, nor peas. Added oregano, basil, thyme, & parsley, bay leaf. I cooked it on the stovetop, and we all loved it!
