An average meal for us. I wanted much more flavor. It is filling and a quick fix for busy weeknights for sure.

Very easy to make. Might add chopped carrots next time. I omitted the butter, subbed fat free milk and reduced fat soup.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 11, 2012

I made this recipe as stated and really liked it! Yes, it doesn't have strong, bold flavors as other reviewers have commented, but sometimes that's ok, and in this case, I think it turned out fine. It was a quick, easy meal that was tasty on a busy work night. Will make again for sure!
