    as the name suggests very easy, altho had to add some water and a stock cube. was enjoyed by all who ate it  -  18 Oct 2012


    Very delicious. Added a tiny bit of cream right at the end. By the time veggies were cut took a bit longer than half an hour, but still nice and quick to do after a long day at work. Will be doing again.  -  01 Sep 2014


    We couldn't believe how much we love this stew! To save time and dishes, instead of serving with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta I cubed 3 small potatoes and added them along with the other ingredients. I also omitted the butter and used spray olive oil to cut down on the fat grams. We will certainly enjoy this one pot meal time and again!  -  23 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
