Submitted by: ANGELA3511

Introduction

This is a fabulous, hearty dish. Great for cool fall or winter nights. Low in calories and cholesterol, high in good fats, Vitamins A and C and full of healthy veggies.

You can easily adjust this recipe by changing or excluding the meat (add beans or tofu for protein), change the starch to diced potatoes, pasta, couscous,rice, etc. Very adaptable and yummy!
