This was very good. I also added fresh cut up cauliflower & sweet red pepper & doubled the sauce.

I've been making this recipe for years now, only I use fresh vegetables. The taste is soooo much better. The only thing that I add is a little bit of brown sugar. It helps to get the acidity of the orange juice down. Makes for a GREAT combination.
