MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 30, 2013

"I made these not really expecting much of the recipe, but I wanted to try it because it seemed like an easy meal. I really liked the taste of this meal, but my family wasn't really impressed. It was fairly easy to make and you could easily substitute ingredients, for example, instead of the parsley, I substituted cilantro. I would eat this again, but I don't think my family would!"
