I left the cover off for most of the cooking, because the stew was otherwise a little thin. But what delicious flavors! The red peppers really permeated the dish. The vegetables all became very soft, so if you like a little body in your stew veggies, you might want to add a few more toward the end of cooking. We served these with buttered noodles. They would also be good with potatoes or rice. Thanks for posting!
