A nice dish that was easily prepared and tasted good. I skipped the fennel (not fans!),and grated the carrot rather than sliced but otherwise made as directed. A good mid week supper,that we enjoyed served with brown rice.

My family really enjoyed this! I used minced garlic forgot the lemon juice and skipped on the fennel and wine. Was spicy enough for my DH but not so much to burn DD's tongue off. We served it with cresent rolls.

Made for Newest Zaar Tag 2008 (June). This was okay, but we felt it was missing something, but couldn't put our finger on it. This was, however, a nice one pot meal which is what I usually look for.
