"To jazz up this versatile and homey dish, add basil, allspice or thyme to the tomatoes. Additional vegetables, like onions, carrots and celery can also be added to the tomatoes. Herbs like rosemary or tarragon could be mixed into the dumpling batter or add a splash of cream or balsamic vinegar once the dumplings are done."

"This worked out very well on a busy weekday. I used diced tomatoes, as that is what I had on hand and served a side salad along with it. :)"
"I gave this 4 stars. My future hubby talks about tomatoes and dumplings all the time. He really enjoyed tomatoes and dumpkings. He said when he was a kid his mom used to make them for him. Thanks for posting. Christine (internetnut)"
"It was late, i was hungry and wanted something comforting but easy. This hit the spot beautifully. They only change I made was to add some fresh basil. Next time i will get fancier but tonight i just wanted pure ease and comfort and yumminess. It fit all 3."
"Wow! We all loved this dish. I used 1/2 tsp of allspice and 2 cups of cooked chicken, and I could have added more of each. It's simple and delicious. I followed the directions exactly and it came out beautifully."
"Very easy to make. Instead of dropping the dough by teaspoon, I rolled out the dumplings (I love the flat chewy dumplings). I also used brown sugar and skipped the egg. My nieces love this recipe. My grandmother made these for me when I was pregnant with my daughter. They remind me of hers. Very definitely a comfort food. "
"So, so very good! I added a bayleaf with the tomatoes and some other spices - oregano, red pepper and garlic powder - otherwise followed the directions to the "t" and it was fabulous! PS: - added shredded chicken breast to the sauce the second time around cuz the DH is soooo NOT a vegetarian - scrumptious! We fried the breast first - then added to the sauce."
"This is way way better than I thought it would be. It's a wonderful vegetarian entree. I added garlic powder and basil to the tomatoes and I used canned diced tomatoes. I used Jiffy baking mix and omitted the egg from the dumplings. It was scrumptious! The uncovered-then-covered method for cooking the dumplings worked beautifully and resulted in wonderful fluffy dumplings...not a sinker in the bunch. Don't skip the garnish of more butter and a bit of black pepper - it really makes the dish taste great. I will definately make this one again."
