Bland flavor says my husband. No need to make again.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2013

It is a rare occasion that I leave a poor review on any recipe, however I felt that it must be done. When I tasted this before serving it to my family, I immediately set it aside due to it's flavor (or rather, absolute lack thereof) and revolting mushy texture. I followed the recipe as written and I am sad to say that this went straight to the garbage can as it had no redeeming qualities. Very disappointed.
