I actually want to say 4.5 on the stew scale... this is a nice alternative to the same old beef stew. The previous reviewer was correct - it did need something and that something was wine and garlic. I used the empty tomato can and filled it about 1/3 of the way full with golden sherry. I did not lessen the chicken stock, but I did add 2 more T. of quick cooking tapioca and 1 T. of diced garlic. I also added more beans, carrots and potatoes than called for. I did use 4 cheese red sauce and NOT the alfredo. It was very tasty topped with grated Romano or Parmesan cheese.


This recipe is pretty good, but it feels like it needs something. Maybe white wine in place of some of the chicken broth? Also, I got this recipe out of a magazine originally and in that version it says that you can use alfedo OR marinara or some sort of red pasta sauce. I used marinara and it turned out much better than how I think it would with the alfredo.


Loved this stew! Makes a big pot, for sure! I used nice large chunks of veggies and just eyeballed the amounts. Recipe does say add wine, but the ingredient list doesn't show it, so I added 1/2 cup dry sherry. I did use Classico Creamy Alfredo, it was delicious. My only regret was slow cooking this on high only 5 hours (time constraints), next time on low for a good eight+ hours or so, my chunky carrots were still a bit hard, but edible. I added some garlic powder too. A do-over for sure, hubs just loved this.
