This is an awesome recipe. My first time using a Dutch oven, it proved simple and easy to make. The only difference is that I made it with a pound and a half of shrimp to get more protein in my kiddos. We all went back for seconds!

I have been cooking for I don’t want tell you how many decades! This is by far, my absolute favorite dish. Not only is it amazingly scrumptious, and easy to prepare, the cleanup is a snap! The flavor is out of this world. My “ all time” comfort supper as well. Just saying “supper” makes it a comfort food!

This was so good, fast and easy to make. I made this exactly as written, except for using the basil, oregano

5-stars because there isn't a sixth!! This recipe is so simple, but the end result is amazing! Don't pass on this one! My husband words - "This is a keeper!" I used canned diced stewed tomatoes because that's what I had. We like a little heat, so I added a little cayanne pepper - wasn't necessary, just a preferance for heat. Oh, and you're probably gonna want to double the recipe! So good!!

I haven’t made this yet but it looks super delicious. I do have a question though. I have seen this a lot when making a seafood dish people use chicken stock instead of using seafood stock which is available. Is there a particular reason for it. I myself would rather use seafood stock so just asking

This was wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly, with one small exception - instead of using plain canned diced tomatoes, I used the canned diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and garlic. This was a big hit with the family. That being said, I would definitely double the recipe next time, because if you truly are serving four people, with decent size appetites, it may not be quite enough, and, I also like to have leftovers!

Excellent! The only small thing I did differently was, rather than using plain canned diced tomatoes, I used the basil, garlic & oregano canned, diced tomatoes. Other than that minor change in the type of canned tomatoes, I followed this exactly and would absolutely make again
