It’s not quite Fall weather where I live yet, in fact, it still feels like summer most days and this has me confused.  I want to make all the Fall
meals, baked goods, and start wearing sweatshirts but instead I am still in short sleeves and planning meals that do not require my oven to be turned on.  That’s why this meal is perfect for both of those seasons – Summer and Fall! Doesn’t heat up the kitchen and it’s full of fresh flavors for a hearty Fall meal.

Recently the good folks at Red Gold Tomatoes were kind enough to send me a kit full of their wonderful canned tomatoes plus a couple of other goodies.  Included were a few crockpot recipes using their canned tomatoes, which I might added are the best tomatoes I have ever eaten from a can.

I can’t wait to try all of the recipes this Fall and Winter.  I decided to use a few of the cans they gave me in my Chicken Cacciatore recipe and they did not disappoint with flavor and freshness.

This is a great meal to start in the morning and come home to after a long day and leftovers make great lunches the next day.  Walking in the door to smell this meal will have you drooling for it, trust me.

1 red bell pepper, sliced into strips
