      This stew is delicious! The smell of the herbs cooking with the onions and garlic permeate the air with a heavenly bouquet... it was so enticing, the painter working on our house asked if he could possibly join us for lunch! After a hearty bowl, he asked if he could have the recipe to take home to his wife. Oh, and all four of my kids went back for seconds...that is a rare thing to have happen. I only made two small changes to the stew, which did not really alter it much. I did add a cup of water just to thin it out a tiny pinch, and then at the table each bowl got a sprinkling of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. This is a keeper for sure~ Made for Fall PAC 2008

      I cut the recipe in half and that worked well. The family said that it was too bland, but we like more flavor. The fiber is great and I will make this again but with more seasoning.
