Okay, this dish was so delicious that it almost didn't make it as far as the oven. Moreover, I came this close to omitting the rice and cheese! I used a regular onion, a bunch of fresh mushrooms, half a red pepper, lots of fresh garlic, 1 30-oz .can of diced tomatoes, drained, and the spices called for in the recipe (only more of them). I also added about 1/4 C. of good-quality dry sherry when the veggies were crisp tender. I could've stopped right there, it was so good. One taste, and I was hooked, but decided to use the rice and cheese, since I wanted to experience the entire recipe.
Can't wait until my garden produces red tomatoes, which will really add to the flavor. And btw, I used homemade chicken broth for my brown rice (doubled the recipe for rice). This will become a regular at our house!
