MY REVIEW

"My whole family enjoyed this! I left out the cheese and substituted salsa that I had on hand for the diced tomatoes. It had an excellent flavor. I like to eat lentils with tortilla chips so I scooped up the casserole with the chips. A delicious healthy (and pretty inexpensive) meal!"

"Very Good! Think I'll omit the cheese next time - don't think the dish needs it."

"Made this without the cheese. Took 2.5 hours!!!! to cook in a calibrated oven. Hubby would only eat it smothered in ketchup. Hope you like it more than we did."
