"I didn't have the tomato sauce and used a 1/2 can tomato paste plus 2/3 cup chicken broth instead. This made a sweet tasting sauce so to counter it I added 2 teaspoons capers and a drop of their liquiid and the results were perfect! Also used double oregano and some fresh thyme. Just Love the end results!"

"This recipe is very flavorful if you use 2 green peppers, make it in the morning and let it sit all day. The flavors really intensify. I serve it with penne. Italians call it Hunters's Stew"
