what a wonderful weekday dish. comes together with little effort. tastes great and is very warm and satisfying on a winter's night. a keeper. (did substitute low sodium beef broth for water & bouillon cube. added no salt seasoning blend. so we could feel pretty healthy too!

We're trying to eat healthier so I tried this recipe. I did add a can of diced tomatoes and a little salt and pepper. We loved it and would definitely make it again.
