I thought this recipe was surprisingly good, I made several adjustments though. First I used fresh veggies and cooked them longer in order to soften. I deglazed the pan with white wine a couple of times, no more than 3 tbps. I also added Texas Pete and a little garlic salt to the sauce. Overall it was pretty good.
To quickly thaw frozen vegetables, place them in a colander, and rinse them with hot tap water. Serve with bottled hot sauce.
