I use this recipe as a blue print BUT this is what I used: 1-14.5oz can of Swanson chicken broth, 1-14.5oz can of Swanson beef broth, 1-14.5oz can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano (to give some flavor), 1-14.5oz petite diced tomatoes, 1-15oz garbanzo beans (drained and washed), half an onion chopped, 3 stalks of celery chopped, pre-cut 1.20 lb zucchini/yellow squashed, 1 lb italian ground sausage, 1/2 lb ground turkey, 1/4 c Kraft sun-dried tomato dressing. I cooked the meet till brown, drained grease. Then added everything else and cooked over high heat until boiled. Then reduced heat to simmered for 30 mins. I made gluten free penne pasta (all I could find) ENJOY!!!!


Not a bad quick meal. Very easy to prepare. Use fire roasted diced tomatoes for extra flavor. Serve with fresh bread and a glass of wine and you have a real winner!


I've been making this for years and it's one of our favorite dishes. Super easy and flavorful. I make it as directed in the recipe.
