really good idea. I left out the beans and added shrimp. I added zucchini I had on hand too. Needs more spices. Lemon juice added a lot.

Very good and you could really mix up the vegetables so I like the flexibility. I would maybe add fresh basil at the end.

Everyone loved this! We added some smoked paprika, onion powder, a bay leaf, and extra pepper to pump up the flavor a bit.

Delicious! We were impressed with the flavour and even our toddler gobbled it down! Definitely benefits from a good parmesan!
