Quick, easy and delicious. I didn't think it would be so flavorful but it was a hit that my dinner guests enjoyed. I make it often. Thanks for the recipe!

This is alright. Tasty enough. It's a huge quantity (6 servings would be large), and very heavy on the tomatoes, so not great if you're at all likely to get acid.

I actually ended up making this in the crock pot! I used a bag of dried black eyed peas, and threw everything else in except the tomatoes and vinegar, which I added right before serving (I hear...

STELLAR! We used ditalini pasta so it would be the same size as the peas, and since I had no peppers, I diced up carrots instead. A little hot sauce on the table really rounded it out. Just w...

Maybe I just don't like the combination of beans and pasta (although I love them separately). I found this okay but nothing to write home about. BUT, my finicky 5 year old liked the sauce when...
