"I would omit the mushrooms, then take away from the zucchini. I would add chicken broth instead of water."

"This dish is excellent. I double the recipe and freeze it for weeknight dinners. It just needs some salt."

"Really bland and not at all what I expected. My husband found this recipe and was begging me to make it. He thought it was "ok" but thought it would be a lot better as well. My daughter and I both ended up eating something else."
