I thought this recipe was easy to prepare, and was a good comfort food dinner, but I agree with the comments above regarding the recipe being bland. I made the recipe exactly as stated above with no substitutions. I will make this recipe again, but I have a few tips or thoughts for next time:
1) I tried the technique described in the recipe for processing the veg, but ended up with more of a puree than a fine chop. I don't know if this was really that bad, but next time I will experiment and use the shredder on my processor to see if I end up with actual bits of veggies.
2) I will definitely use more Worchestire Sauce, more herbs and some tomato paste next time.
3) Because the recipe is bland, my husband added a little shredded cheddar to the top of his serving. I know that this reduces the health factor a bit, but it really added to the flavor.
