I have been cooking this recipe since the 1960's. We have always enjoyed it and still do! Very. very easy too.

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!

Awesome recipe. I am a firefighter and I cook this for the guys at work. They loved it. I doubled the recipe added mushrooms, and crush red pepper to it. Cooked it over fettuccine. It is on our rotation for dinner at work.

I served this last night over brown rice and my family loved it. My 6 year old said the he liked the ice cream we had for dessert better. I can't imagine why.

This was a wonderful quick recipe. I was lucky enough to have some fresh herbs growing so I used about 1 tbsp of fresh parsley, 1 tsp of fresh oregano, 1/2 tsp of fresh basil and a fresh bay leaf.

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
