"This sounds great! I will try this soon, will serve over brown rice with perhaps green beans. Will skip the cheese and bread to keep it gluten & dairy free. Sounds delicious!"

"I have made this recipe many many times for myself and others. It takes awhile but the flavor makes the time put in worth it. It is even good reheated for lunch the next day."
