READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Deborah1

An easy tasty one pot dinner. Makes a delicious and inexpensive dinner in a hurry.Vegetarian version. Substitute meat alternative(I have used the Morning Star Farms and the Ready Ground Beef Crumbles with great success, or just leave out altogether and use as a side dish)

Quite good! I used ground turkey sausage which added a good bit of flavor. I did have to add more liquid to keep it from going dry. I think two or three cans of tomatoes would have suited my taste better.
