Top Review by natedbaby

this was great...soo easy...i tweeked it a bit with some chopped onion, garlic, red sine, worchestire (just s little), and added cubed eggplant (REALLY GOOD) and carrots halfway thru cooking time so they wouldn't be too soft. I also ommitted the tomato juice and instead added tomato paste when I added the vegetables to thicken it...This is great over rice or noodles!!!EXCELLENT!!!
