Mushroom Stew

"I adapted this recipe from one I found in a cooking magazine called Mary Dee's. You could add cooked meat to this if you wanted to, but it is very good as is. When I bring this stew to work for lunch, the garlic guarantees popularity ALL afternoon!"

  1. This was a very good .... sauce. I was actually looking for stew because I was on fast/diet and I couldn't have pasta, rice, meat etc. This was a VERY good sauce, very spicy, now that I can have the rotini I'm going to try it again! I had no problems with the recipe, very easy to make and feel the house up with a great aroma! Thanks for posting this! Bridget
  2. Tastey stuff. Loved the whole garbonzo, tomato thing- gave it a hunter style feel. A few things I did different- I browned the red pepper, garlic, onions and mushrooms in a bit of olive oil first, then proceeded as instructed. I also used wagon wheel pasta as that was what I had and my guests thought they were a hoot! I also used a mixture of mushrooms: some white button, some crimini, and some reconstituted shitakii's (YUM). Mmmm Mushroomy goodness. ;)
  3. Very tasty, but just not quite what sings for us. Personal taste, so please, guys, don't let this review discourage you from trying it.
  4. i have made this many times and everyone loves it. im headed up to a cabin this weekend and plan to make this to help keep us warm on a chilly night. wonderful comfort food.
  5. This was pretty good...of course, my kids did not like it. I am trying to force them to eat better(if they are hungry enough they will eat) just kidding. I cut back on the red pepper. Hubby and I liked it considering how healthy it is. We just need to keep trying healthy stuff until our tastes change.


Can't believe I've been a member here for 18 years! It's changed a lot since the old RecipeZaar days and maybe or maybe not for the better. It used to be a community and now it's just a tool. Sad, but life goes on. I have been in Kentucky for 12 years now and enjoy the country lifestyle, along with master gardening. Recipes I've found here since Day One are still in my rotation. Don't entertain that much anymore, so finding new and exciting foods is no longer center stage. Just glad to have so many good recipes to fall back on because eating out is expensive and sometimes too far to drive.
