This stew is bursting with colour and flavour, with loads of veg and aromatic herbs and spices. Omit the Parmesan for a vegan version. You can substitute cauliflower for the red cabbage.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
This was a really good dish. I had to add extra tomato sauce, though. Next time I think I will try green beans and red peppers - yum! - 16 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
