I really loved this recipe. I had no tomatoes at all in the house so they had to be skipped but the remaining ingredients came together beautifully. Having said that I must also say that I didn't feel that way until the lemon was added. Each taste before that kept saying "there's something missing". I resisted adding salt or anything else and with the lemon addition it suddenly sparkled and was wonderfully complete. This is very substantial and I'm not sure that I'd want it in the summer but it sure did hit the spot on this Oct evening.
This was one my my 3 favorite recipes of the contest. Well done, chef.
