“Simple to make, yet good enough to serve when company is coming. Serve over hot fluffy rice with french bread. I always asked for this dish when Maw Maw asked me what I wanted her to cook for me.”

  2. Do not cook until they are completely done.
  3. Add Tomato Soups, diced tomatoes (do not drain) and seasonings.
  4. Simmer until it thickens up some and all flavors have married & veggies are soft.
  5. Add shrimp at the end and cook until they turn pink. Stir to incorporate shrimp into the dish. DO NOT OVERCOOK!
  6. Remove bay leaves, and serve over hot fluffy rice with french bread.
  7. It is better if you don't chop the vegetables too fine.
