"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."

"Really good! This is one delicious veggie dish that requires very little preparation. I bought a bag of shredded carrots which even made the dish quicker.PLUS, everyone who walked into my house said Ohh whatever you are making for dinner smells so good!"
