"Not sure why the stars aren't showing on this recipe but count mine 5 stars. I thought it was easy and very versatile. I fixed it just as is except for a few drops of hot sauce. That is saying a lot for a recipe for me as I am usually such an experimenter. Great dish. Really fine for any season because I am sure it would have been fine with canned diced tomatoes. Except, you would have to use the no-salt added type to keep the sodium level the same."
