      This was a very good stew. I did add a bit more tomato paste than the recipe called for because I thought it was a bit runny.

      Excellent Italian stew! I originally forgot to add the kidney beans and it still tasted good but I went back and added the beans it tasted even better! The kidney beans help to make it a complete and filling stew. The basil and bay leaf add good flavor to the stew. Next time I may add a little Italian seasoning and let it simmer a little longer. Thanks for the delicious stew Karamia1
