This is a vegetarian delight. High in protein and fiber, and low in fat and calories, this stew-like dish is very satisfying and healthy :)

Great Luncheon dish - I cut the recipe back to 2 servings - no problem. I used a bit more garlic than called for and used fresh chopped tomatoes with a bit of tomatoe juice. The spices are wonderful, used rotini Myrtle tree pasta. We'll have this again Thanks Karen
