Hello from Bolivia again! This recipe was a great hit tonight. We don't have kielbasa here, so I used a meat called 'Salchicha Vienna', I was not inspired to make the dish with 'Chorizo'. The salchica turned out great though. I completely forgot about the green pepper when shopping, but as I was reading some of the other comments I came across carrots, so I tried that instead. I am a lover of garlic, so I added much more of that . . . actually, I didn't measure anything, I just do it all to taste and preference. Stewed tomatoes are not available, so I chopped up 2lbs fresh tomatoes, added some sugar, salt, and basil and called it good. Didn't have the parmesan either, but I used some grated cheese (no idea what it is) and it ended up being a crowd pleaser. Because I used fresh tomatoes, I added them to the pot and let them cook down for about 30 minutes. This was a refreshing change for us. The whole family (even my very picky 5 year old) really enjoyed this. I'm sure that the actual recipe is delicious (I'll have to save that review for when I'm back in the USA where I can get the correct ingredients), but I say all this to say . . . don't be a stickler to the ingredients and measurements! If you like something, use more of it, if you don't like something, substitute it with stuff you do. Living here in Bolivia has certainly made me a more flexible cook.
