Yumm-O!!!!!!, as Rachael would say!!!! This gets twenty stars!!!!! This is a wonderful, simple cioppino that you can whip up in a snap!!! Rachael Ray really knows how to season food!!!! I love the layering of seasoning in this and the cayenne gives it just the perfect amount of heat!!!!!! I used fire roasted tomatoes and I put the juice in with them because I wasn't sure if they should be drained or not and it turned out great with their juice added!!! The only thing I did different was add stock instead of water and I rubbed my tilapia with a bit of minced, fresh garlic before adding them to the pot. This is a really great recipe, thanks for posting dicentra!!!!
