Another recipe that FAR surpassed my expectations! The combination of ingredients in this recipe is absolutely wonderful and the spices compliment each other perfectly! The only change I made was in using fresh tomatoes instead of canned. This made a delicious dinner with bread and cheese. Thanks SO MUCH Tish! I'm gonna make this a lot!
