"Very good! I did not have stewed tomatoes so just used canned whole tomatoes. This was a very tasty dish. I also omitted the salt cause who needs more salt?! :)"

"I have searched for over a year for this recipe. I found it in the magazine then lost the magazine. Great for garden bounty of tomatoes, yellow and zuchinni squash"
