      Such a great recipe! Especially for a rainy day. We made this tonight without the wine. It was superb! Great with some garlic bread and fresh salad.

      I made this for the Pick A Chef Fall 2009- Perfect for those cool evenings - salad - crusty bread and a glass of wine! Really good, and not too hard - and a big plus, most of the ingredients are pantry staples!
