    i wish you would do this recipe using all fresh ingredients... no canned tomatoes or beans. i have been changing the way i cook from getting away from processed foods and canned anything....yes i know sometimes there is no time to make everything from scratch but this would be lovely with fresh products and then it can be stored in the freezer which would then be a simple quick and grab meal during a busy week. cant wait to try this with all fresh ingredients.......
