Surprisingly good for something so simple! Fennel seemed like an odd choice, but somehow it just works--I'd advise against subbing other seasonings in its place, at least on the first go round. I followed the advice of others and used canned, not fresh, black-eyed peas and just a 14.5-oz can of tomatoes. I also used whole unground fennel seeds, two bags of spinach (~4-5 cups), only 1 1/2 ts of salt, and a liberal sprinkling of black pepper, and I let it cook down on the stove rather than transferring to the oven. I thought this recipe would be underwhelming, but it's really excellent--will definitely be making this again!
