      Thank you for your compliment! I like it too. We don’t do nutritional stats as ingredients and portion size are subject to vast interpretation. Its always best to learn to calculate them for yourself using or other online apps.

      Oh my my! I make this quite frequently… I don’t drain my tomatoes… BUT I use the kind with a thick sauce. IF you ever try it again, I would suggest either draining the tomatoes if you dont buy the thick kind or adding half at a time. This really turns out beautifully and I am sorry it didnt turn out great for you and your family! I am sure it tasted good!!!

    I made this tonight for my husband and I and it was delicious! I did drain off most of the water, next time I’ll look for the tomatoes in the thicker sauce.

    I made this last night it was great! Mine was soupy too, so next time I will drain tomatoes of if I can’t find tomatoes with thick sauce or maybe use fresh tomatoes. Also I used a can of green chili’s on stead of pepperoncini, I like spice but others don’t. It was delicious will definitely make again. In fact every recipe I’ve tried of yours I will definitely make again.

    I made this evening, but omitted the peppers and olives and doubled the Italian seasoning. It was very watery, next time I will drain the tomatoes, but it was very delicious! (Yes, raw chicken cut into small pieces). My 20 yr. old son loved it! For him, I made spaghetti noodles and scooped it on top for him, but for me I omitted the noodles (obviously!). thank you so much for sharing!!

    BOT has encouraged me to a 21lb loss of regain. I’m determined because I now have group support and excellent products all right here!

    I just tried this last night and ended up with soupy food — the flavor was very good! Should have read about draining the tomatoes in the comments section first. I wonder if crushed tomatoes would be thick enough?

  6. Teresa says:

    Just made this for dinner tonight. I drained the tomatoes and my recipe still came out watery. I’m thinking the zucchini is the culprit for the water. Otherwise it tastes good. Next time I’m thinking of using broccoli in place of the zucchini, adding more Italian spice, peppercini, and olives.

    Loved the recipe! I added spinach and chicken stuffing. It came out a little salty, but it was my mistake… now i now for next time, because there will be a next time… and soon! 😃

  8. Maria says:

    Absolutely awesome! And so healthy! I added also stuffing (saw it in another recipe), and when I added the cheese, I also added spinach. Second time making it, didn’t have black olives, so I used green olives, and it was just as yummy. Everyone loved it!
