An especially good stew! I like the low fat aspect yet it's very full flavoured, wholesome and comforting. I let the pot simmer for a good half hour and that was enough; it didn't need an hour. I used a half tsp of cayenne and we enjoyed that strength..it was there but not too boldly. Also added 1/2 cup pasta sauce & didn't need any extra water. Seasoned with salt and pepper at the table. Thanks for posting this stew..it's a keeper!
