This is a great side dish for ham or fish using garden-fresh tomatoes, peppers, celery and onions. A little sugar cuts the acid of the tomatoes.

I was looking for something different to use up all the tomatoes and peppers at our home. This was a simple, tasty dish that my family enjoyed. I added diced zucchini and chopped flat leaf parsley. It was nice as a hot dish, but even better after it had time to cool down and allow the flavour to develop. Read More

Turned out great! I actually added a can of 'Manwich' which added a nice spice (or as I like to call it 'zing'). A pinch of dried red pepper and chili powder. Then I added some cooked shells to wrap it all up. Good stuff!!! Read More

I made this recipe to use up an abundance of tomatoes from my garden. My husband doesn t like onion or celery in it so I left it out. I did cook the peppers for a while before adding the tomatoes to soften them up a little quicker. After it was done and tasting it I added a little extra dried basil and oregano to enhance the tase a little more since I didn t use onion or celery. We loved it. Made another batch and froze it. Will definitely keep this recipe for next year. Read More

Absolutely delicious! I made these tonight and they were a hit with my family! I did not have celery so I substituted zucchini instead. I did not have cornstarch so I used flour instead. I will definitely make these again. Stewed tomatoes have always been a comfort food for me. Now I have this awesome recipe! Thank you! Read More

Use stewed tomatoes cold to top off a bowl of mac and cheese. This works great. Read More

No changes, fresh tomatoes and peppers from our garden. Used to make Okra and Tomato Skillet, and Tomato Bacon Gravy from this site. I recommend both of those recipes, too. Read More
