This was quite different than the stew I normally make - and I knew going in that it would be since the base was tomato paste. I definitely discovered that I prefer a more gravy-based stew, not the tomato, but that's a matter for my tastebuds, not the recipe. And this stew was actually quite good. The only real change I made was to add some fresh garlic - I can't quite conceive of a stew without it. And I did a mix of peas and corn (mostly because I only had a partial bag of peas left). But I followed the rest of the recipe rather closely. I used a large sprig of freshly picked rosemary and didn't find it overpowering at all. I did wind up adding some salt and pepper toward the end of the simmer time, but again, that's just my tastebuds, and my responsibility as the cook to adjust seasoning to taste.
