Easy and delicious. I made this for my aunt who is on a low salt diet and it was a big hit. I substituted frozen peas for the green peppers, but didn't add them until 30 minutes before serving.

Great recipe. I altered it a bit to suit my own needs. I added 5 cloves of garlic chopped, fresh rosemary, and 1/2 cup of red wine instead of the water. I also cooked it in a crockpot. I cooked it slow for about 6 hours. It's very hearty and I liked the idea of cutting the vegi's BIG, it adds to the heartiness!!! DLA Concord, CA.
