    This recipe was easy to make. I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes and baby spinach in place of the swiss chard. Yummy! - 5/23/10

  • Had to substitute kidney beans for white, didn't have rosemary or pepper flakes either. Used some curry, cumin, oregano, cayenne, and basil combo instead. Absolutely delicious! Saving this recipe for sure!
