"I joined this site just to pass on the information that this dish is not good AT ALL! There is no taste and the proportions are all wrong. There is no way that anyone actually ever made this recipe. This must have been thrown together to fill the site for recipes or something because this is not a dish that you would ever make on purpose. Awful waste of time."

"This was delicious. My husband, a picky eater, really enjoyed it. I added other vegetables I had on hand to add variety."
