Nice, easy recipe. I used 2 cans diced tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce, dried porcini mushrooms, and added shallot and a bird's eye pepper. This a versatile recipe and good for using up what you have in the fridge.

Great recipe! I made a few changes which I think made it an even better meal. We used jalapeno diced tomatoes and instead of mushrooms we used corn! Nice recipe to play around with and use your own variations. Thank you for posting.
