Make it on a "non-work" day by starting early in the morning using a Dutch Oven (I don't have a slow-cooker, either.) Use crushed garlic gloves for garlic powder(no garlic powder here, either but always garlic cloves aplenty). Spray pot with no-stick spray-cook onion slices with crushed garlic only til wilted-not browned or carmelized. Add other ingredients. Bring to boil-turn down to lower heat and simmer until dinner time. Serve over whole wheat spaghetti noodles with a tossed green salad and you are set! Should serve 4 to 6 people!
