We enjoyed this meal on a cool spring night in Australia. I made half a recipe and a few minor changes. I used 2 cloves of fresh garlic (crushed), one 14-ounce tin of corn kernels (drained) because they were on hand, and 1 teaspoon of cumin and 28 ounces of tomatoes (as per loof's suggestion). The Italian seasoning contributes a lot of flavour. KathieJo, your family is lucky to have such a nice meal on a cold winter night. Made and enjoyed for Pick a Chef.

This was good and VERY filling and easy to make. The liquid in the pan is to die for, yum! This is like what RR would call a 'stoup'. lol I did use 2-14.5 ounce cans of stewed tomatoes and had plenty of liquid in the pan. Otherwise I made as written. Thank you for posting.

This was okay but I think when the recipe says 2 (8 ounce) cans of stewed tomatoes it means a 28 ounce can. When I put it together using 16 ounces of tomatoes, there was not nearly enough liquid to do any simmering! Just my luck I didn't have any more tomatoes so I used 1 1/2 cups of beef broth. If I were to make this again I would use more tomatoes and add more spices - maybe a little cumin or cayenne.
