I agree, if you take time & chop all the veggies it doesn't take much time at all to make. I donât add the wine and it still comes out with full flavor. I skip the pearl onions, but add celery. Sometimes I use pork stew meat which is also very good. My husband loves this stew & it tastes even better the next day! Iâve been making it every fall/winter for 2 years & love it!

This stew does have a lot of flavor, but the 28-oz can of crushed tomatoes overwhelmed the broth & wine and made the dish taste more like a marinara sauce than a stew. If I make this again, I'll likely substitute the 28-oz can with 15 ounces of diced tomatoes and/or a cup (or smaller can) of crushed tomatoes.

Will make this again and again. I added some yellow squash just because I had some to use but I think any combination of vegetables would work wonderfully. It had full flavor and very satisfying. Did need a little more salt for my taste.
