"I made this for dinner tonight, it was a winner! The only changes I made were that I used red bell peppers and vegetable broth. Turned out so good."

MY REVIEW

"This stuff is sooooo good just as written! If you don't like spice, you'll want to cut back on the Cajun seasoning and black pepper. Don't change a thing for me though."

"Very good. Hubby and I had no problem with this. I did use a red pepper instead of a green one and added some chopped celery along with the rest of the veggies. Thanks for the recipe."
