Italian Vegetable Stew

Italian Vegetable Stew created by Katzen

I found this recipe in a Canadian Living Magazine, which calls for vegetable marrow. I wondered what this vegetable was, as I'd never seen it before. Turns out it is a relative of the zucchini, and zuchini or yellow squash is easily substituted. The stew, with a few small modifications, turned out delicious, and the juices are perfect to sop up with some crusty italian bread.

    This was very good! Warm and filling, with a little zip from the hot pepper flakes. I used the zucchini option, dried basil, and broth. I also omitted the salt (personal preference). I wasn't sure when to add the tomatoes, so I put them in with the potatoes since I figured the extra liquid they would make would be needed during the simmering time. Thanks for sharing!
