Easy and I loved the flavor, halved the recipe and cooked as directed except I used dried thyme. Will use more garlic and bigger cloves if I can find it. Rita, thanks for posting

YUMMY! I used some of our garden tomatoes, garden garlic and subbed basil for the thyme because that's what we had! I will admit though - I didn't really measure, just winged it. Made for ZWT 8
