This recipe as everyone has already stated is very simple. My family loves onions, so I added half of a sliced onion with 3 cloves of garlic to the mushrooms and let them sauté. I also added the tomato paste to the veggies and "brown" for about 3 min to intensify the flavor of the paste constantly stirring so it doesn't burn. I then deglaze with either chicken broth or white wine before adding the tomato sauce and rotel.

this recipe is so simple. it is easy and delicious, bursting with flavor and a real crowd pleaser, even for my youngest. it took comparably very little time to prepare and the ingredients unlike a lot of other online recipes were easily accessible at my local supermarket and quite inexpensive.
