I was surprised how great this stew-like recipe tasted since it didn't have any onions or even garlic in it. However I did use only 1-15 oz can of diced tomatoes and 2-15 oz cans of fire roasted tomatoes (yum!) I also used a package of frozen corn cubed (1") 5 small yukon gold potatoes plus 1 tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning (the only seasoning I had). I probably could have omitted the black pepper or only put in 1/2 the amount - as it was pretty peppery - but my husband likes pepper. Plus I added about 1 Tbsp of freshly grated parmesan cheese to the top of each serving. I also made corn bread muffins as suggested and it was a delicious combination. Additionally I served with spinach salad made with a shallot and mustard dressing which really complimented the meal. Also make sure to use an extra large skillet or dutch oven as it makes quite a bit. No need to drain - used juices to dunk corn bread in. My husband is not a fan of tomato-based foods except for spaghetti meat sauce; So when he actually said it was tasty - I new it was a hit! Read More

After reading all of the reviews I decided to give this recipe a try and take the reviewers' suggestions of adding some seasoning. I added a medium onion some garlic and some Italian seasonings. My family enjoyed this recipe. We had some nice crusty bread with it and served it in bowls. It was good but not our favorite. Nice for a cold evening. Easy clean up since it was all made in one large pot on the stove. Our family of 6 enjoyed it with some left for tomorrow's lunch. Read More

My whole family LOVED this dish. I did however make a few changes. I used 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef used half of the called for pepper added a 15 oz can of tomato sauce added 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning added 1/2 tsp. minced garlic and used two 14.5 oz cans Italian diced tomatoes. I didn't have to add any water to cover all the vegetables. i had to use a Dutch oven because this recipe makes A LOT. It also took considerably longer than 20 minutes for the potatoes to cook (probably need to cut them smaller next time). Served with cornbread and every raved about it and asked me to definitely make this again!!!! Read More

This recipie is very good if you like squash. It has a robust flavor if you use Italian style stewed tomatoes. I also used extra tomato sauce and let it simmer for a longer time letting all the flavors out. Read More

I didn't think this was going to taste very good with only salt & pepper seasoning. Although all of the incredients blended together and it was really good. Even better as leftovers. Thank you! Read More

Delicious! I added Italian Seasoning left out the potatoes and added onion and green beans. From a husband who thinks "Not Bad" is a compliment he raved over and over about how "Delicious" this is. Read More

Very nice dish. I used Italian herb-seasoned crushed tomatoes and that kicked it up a notch for a great taste. I agree with another reviewer who said to use the liquid for bread dipping; draining the dish would be a waste of delicious sauce. Also as mentioned before use a very very large skillet or a dutch oven. Thanks MRSHEIMANN for a good recipe. Read More

I gave this a try to use up a lot of veggies I had on hand from this week's organic co-op harvest and was surprised at how delicious it was with a few modifications: I used ground turkey instead of beef just because that's what I had on hand. In retrospect this would be even more delicious made with Italian sausage instead. I cooked chopped onions and garlic in with the ground turkey. I had to use up a bunch of organic tomatoes so I threw one large one in the blender with some rosemary basil and oregano (to make the "canned" pureed tomatoes) in addition to dicing a couple more. I added some chili powder to everything as it cooked. At the last minute I decided to throw in a bit of goat cheese and a can of cannelini beans... I wasn't sure if this would improve the dish or ruin it but they both turned out to be DELICIOUS additions. The end result was mouthwatering... five stars and beyond with these modifications. My husband normally doesn't care for this type of "one-dish meal " but he raved about it and went back for seconds. My puppies were crying for it the entire time it cooked! As some others mentioned it took much longer than 20 minutes for the potatoes to cook... I think I cooked the entire thing for 40 or 45 minutes on low. Definitely worth the wait but I wish I'd started earlier. Read More
