Very happy with the results - will definitely make it again. BTW I had a couple of corn cobs leftover so I scraped the corn off and added it along with the tomatoes - gave a lovely extra crunch to the dish. Read More

I didn't have any balsamic vinegar so I added rice vinegar. It was outstanding! I served it with grilled chicken and a rice pilaf. Excellent and very healthy dinner. I may add some feta cheese next time and a few chili peppers.:) Read More

Pros: Quick Easy Cons: Scorched garlic undercooked beans overcooked tomatoes bland Read More
