    Easy meal to make, i tweeked it slightly by using tinned plum tomatos. I served it with crusty bread  -  24 Jul 2010


    I made this tonight for supper. I doubled the recipe, and I had dry white beans on hand instead of canned, so I cooked those first and used them. I also substituted drained, canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. It was a real hit, everyone loved it, even hubby ate two plates. I gave it four stars because I cooked it quite a bit longer than the recipe suggested, and we found that it definitely needed salt. Served it with grated Parmesan cheese and bread. I'll definitely make it again.  -  07 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was delicious. I tweaked it, however, and used 4 chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces, 2 cloves of garlic (which needs to be put in about a minute before the chicken or it burns) and used a can of zesty chili style diced tomatoes. My family loved this recipe.  -  26 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
