This was okay. My step-dad used to make this every Sunday and I was really happy to find a recipe for it but it just wasn't what I expected. I gave it a four anyways b/c it wasn't bad. It just wasn't what I expected. My step-dads used to have more flavor and spice to it. Read More

I think there's an error in the recipe. The ingredient list calls for green onions yet shallots are mentioned in the directions. I omitted the shallots and green onions because I didn't have either. It is a good starting place but the recipe needs some more seasonings and is a bit dry. Next time I'll try it with green onions salt additional basil more tomato juice and 1/2 a cup of parmesan cheese mixed into the tomato juice to create a sauce. Otherwise I was excited that it was meat free and had beans. Read More

This was edible but too dry and it also needed salt. Even after I added the salt my husband still did not like this dish at all. I thought it was so-so. Read More
