  1. I think that with my modifications it was a good recipe. First of all... fry or steam the vegetables. You lose flavor and nutrition with boiling. I fried. I also added thyme oregano and garlic to the sauce. I also added more salt and pepper to the recipe. I didn't find the sauce too thick. - Read more ...
  2. This came together easily. This appealed to me because I usually have these ingredients on hand and I'm always looking for a new way to serve veggies.

  9. This had a great flavor but the sauce seemed too thick. It was almost a paste and it just stayed on top of the carrots and onions. I made this for my husband and another couple and we all agreed that it tasted great. I think next time I'll add an extra 1/2 cup of - Read more ...
