"Very good, protein packed meal! I also added in about a half cup of garden pasta sauce for flavor, and did away with the salt."

"We used cous cous instead of the beef because that's what we had in our pantry then added celery and garlic. Pretty good."

"I omitted the green pepper and substituted the tomatoes for a can of rotel. It gave the skillet a little kick."
