    This is a healthy, flavorful, vegetarian dish. Great served with a salad and some crusty french bread, or alone for a nice, hearty lunch. Very filling, too.

      When I tasted the recipe just after adding the tomatoes and beans, I thought that the tomato flavor was too strong. But after it had cooked for five minutes, the spice flavors were absorbed and the tomato flavor was just right for my taste. I'll definitely make this again. It is very easy and takes almost no preparation time.

      Yummy, though the crushed tomatoes dominated the taste much more than I expected. I'd like to try this with a smaller can of diced tomatoes, rather than the larger can of crushed, so that the other flavors can shine -- I tripled the spices and the sauce still tasted more of tomatoes than I'd prefer.
