Combine all ingredients, except the cornstarch, in a large pot. Bring to a boil, lower heat, cover, and simmer about 1 1/2 hours until vegetables are tender. Mix the cornstarch in 1/2 cup water. Slowly add to stew. Stir until thickened.

Helpful hints: This can also be made ina slow cooker. Follow above directions. Cook on high 6 hours or on low for 12. Add the cornstarch mixture just before serving and stir until thickened.

Bonnie -

This is vegies and pasta so I don't know if it'll fit for you or not. It's been really popular every time I've made it. Sorry I don't have amounts of ingredients - it's one of those recipes that has a lot of room for flexibility.

Pasta: 1 oz./person - use rotini or penne or small shells or other small pasta.

Cook and drain.

Vegies: My favorites are broccoli and carrots, cauliflower; mushrooms and peas are good - whatever you like. Spinach is good too... summer squash... you get the idea!

Cook slightly (I use the microwave and just steam them a bit)

Toss pasta and vegies in bowl with grated cheese of choice - swiss is excellant with this; just use enough to give it a hint of flavor.

Put into greased casserole and bake, covered, 350, for about 20 minutes or to heat and melt cheese.

I know this is boring, but I also like to cook small red potatoes (whole, if small enough) until tender - toss with a bit of butter, some lemon juice and some chives and other herbs and pop into a casserole and cover. Can be reheated slightly but also good at room temp.

Bon appetit!
