ok, so I had no business even making this dish, as I had no tomatoes, potatoes or tapioca..but I really wanted it anyway. So I played with it a little. I used cornstarch and cold water in place of tapioca (thanks to suggestions of others). I used 3 tbsp sundried tomato paste (all I had) and 1 cup of red wine. I doubled the bread, used beef stock instead of bouillion & water (also doubled) saute'd the vegies, adding garlic, and lastly added fresh thyme from my garden. It was delicious. (even though I DID miss the potatoes) So THANKS Diane for the inspiration and a great recipe. Next time I'll have all the ingredients! thanks again!
