    ladypit's Note:

    This is a "Cooking Light" recipe that uses spelt (also called farro). While I haven't tried this one yet, I'm currently on a search for good recipes that use old grains and this one sounds good!

      A very good dish. The minor complaint is, that I am not overly fond of the slightly chewy texture of spelt. I might try 1/2 lb whole wheat pasta next time, cooked seperately, and reducing cooking liquid for 2 cups water.- I did add 1 cup of halfed cherry tomatoes during the last minute of cooking, just warming them actually, to have some fresh taste and color. The other major change, I prepared the stew ahead of time without the spelt. When it was done I took off 2 1/2 cups liquid and cooked the spelt seperately in it. I mixed both together 5 minutes before serving. This way I could prepare without the spelt soaking up all liquid. Thank you for a nice recipe, ladypit. :)
