Me, my husband and a friend had this tonight and LOVED it! I didn't cook it in the crock-pot because It was a last minute decision to make it, but I might try that next time. - overall this was very easy, but the crock-pot could make it even easier!
I sauteed onion and crushed garlic then added everything else. I also added 4 cups of veggie broth to make it more of a soupy texture.
I added so much black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes, it was deeeee-lish! I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing!


This sort of dish is my daily bread (or veg!) but of course I live on the Med...I wouldn't use the crockpot, myself, just a regular stove and pot, with maybe a heat diffuser underneath if you're worried about sticking. It is good.


Sorry to be the lone voice of dissention..but I thought this was only okay. It kind of tasted like generic crockpot mush to me, with no real specific flavor. It was easy to make but I won't be making it again. Maybe it was because I used canned tomatoes?


I made this tonight & it was fabulous...went real well with a wild rice/mushroom casserole.
Thank you
