This recipe was handed down from my grandmother. It is a family favorite. A great way to use those garden vegetables. To save time, I cut corn from the cob while other vegetables are cooking.

This recipe is unbelievably delicious! If I could give it ten stars I would!!!!!!!! A time-saving/personal note: My husband and I live an hour from the nearest supermarket, so we rarely have lots of fresh vegetables on hand. I had the onion and bell pepper, but used canned diced tomatoes (drained, of coarse), and fortunately I had a bag each of frozen green beans and corn (not on the cob), which I just thawed in hot water. I used these in place of fresh vegetables, and the recipe still turned out fabulous!!!! For people without much time on their hands, this saves a fair amount of chopping and preparing. Just an idea.. worked for me!!! Read More

My family loves this recipe! I made exactly as written the first time. The 2nd time, I doubled the recipe and added a can of fire roasted tomatoes with my fresh tomatoes. My son wants me to try it with roasted corn next time. This recipe is definitely in our meal rotation. Read More
