  1. This is a great comfort food recipe. It's not highly flavoured, but just a great dinner for a cool night. I just sliced the veg (instead of dicing or mincing, I like a more rustic style. I didn't have any tomato sauce so I used a 32 oz can of roma tomatoes which made the dinner a bit more watery, but this was all sopped up by the bed of rice I served it on. I don't keep bottled dressings on hand, so I just made up Italian dressing with olive oil, white wine vinegar, basil & oregano. Thanks for posting!
  2. Excellent recipe!!! This sure does smell heavenly while cooking. I used a can of tomato sauce with herbs. and followed the recipe exactly. I added this to my favorites!!! Thanks so much!!!
  3. This is an easy dish to prepare. It smells so good as it is cooking. I did add about 1 tsp italian seasoning to the tomato sauce. People at work all want the recipe.


I live near Rochester NY with my husband and our 18-year-old cat, Fluffy. It's actually Fluffy's house, but he allows us to live here as long as we pamper him and feed him generously. Our daughter, Kree, whom some of you know from Zaar, is also living with us again while she begins a new business venture in real estate. She's the one who got me hooked on Zaar and taught me to try new recipes rather than stay in the cooking rut I was in. In my free time I like to take long rides or sit by the water, both of which I find very relaxing. I also like to do counted cross-stitch and read. I dabble in photography, always looking for that elusive 'perfect' shot. I did more cooking before I started working full-time, and plan to again when I retire (still years away, but dreaming).
