Okay, I had to make quite a few changes to adapt to the ingredients I had on hand. I used half of a medium, white onion; a couple small orange and yellow bell peppers; three small hot peppers (not sure what they were, I grew them over the summer and forgot their name); vegetable broth; chicken instead of shrimp; left out the salt; and added creole seasoning instead of the oregano (oregano? in gumbo? strange...). I thought the end result was just okay. I prefer my gumbo to be served with rice, not pasta. It was fun to try something different, though.
