I used this recipe as more of a guide, since I was trying to use up some things I had on hand without running to the store, that said...I still remained quite true to the recipe and yielded delicious results! I didn't have tomato juice or sauce... I simply substituted canned fire roasted tomatoes and loved the chunky tomatoes. I had to add a little extra water since I was losing some of the liquid from the juice and sauce, but it worked just fine! I loved the carrots and mushrooms. I was tempted to slice the mushrooms but really enjoyed their rustic, hearty texture when quartered. I found with my substitutions I needed more salt and pepper than I'd generally add, which says a lot about how much sodium is in canned juice and sauce! I used fresh herbs from my new Spring herb plants! And served over cheese tortellini. Great recipe or guide, however you choose to use it and make it your own!
