Yum, Easy, tasty recipe for a side dish or a main dish. I served it tonight as a side with meatloaf and a green salad. I did add a couple of dashes of red pepper flakes and sprinkled each serving with Parmesan. Will be great as a vegetarian main dish. A good recipe for making variations. Add a little corn or sliced sausage or fresh spinach and on and on.

Great versatile recipe. I love that it's so fast and easy and it only uses a few ingredients that I usually already have in my pantry. My 18 month old daughter loved it too. I served it as a main vegetarian dish with cous cous. I also added some oregano and parsley and sprinkled it with cheese. Next time I think I will saute some sliced zucchini and use a bit of feta cheese for extra flavor. Yummy!

Oh I really loved this! Who'd have thought canned tomatoes could taste this good? I halved this recipe and served it as a side to honey-dijon chicken over rice. Just wonderful. Will definitely go in my regular rotation. Love garbanzo's and tomatoes. Add onion and garlic to the mix and I'm in heaven! Thanks for posting!

Simple, lovely, easy, perfect. I ate this as a meal... in and of itself, tonight. It is light, fresh tasting, filling and just right when you don't feel like whipping together an elaborate meal.

I made this sort of Indian style by adding some rogan josh flavor curry. I served it over cous cous cooked in chicken broth with rasins and pine nuts. It was pretty good, filling and satsifying.

The first time I made this, I halved the recipe and added about 1 tbsp of pimiento. I really enjoyed it by itself, but also ate the next day with rice. I made it again, but I ended up using plain tomato sauce instead of the whole tomatoes. After browning the onions/garlic I put some cooked spinach noodles in there along with the rest of the ingredients, but otherwise didn't change anything. My seven year old thought it was delicious. It smelled funny while I was cooking it, but it didn't taste anything like it smelled, so if you experience a funny smell, don't worry.

I added about a Tbsp of each: Oregano, Basil, Parsley & Cilantro and served it over rice. It was wonderful for lunch and we will finish it off tonight for dinner!
