MY REVIEW

Although, easy to make, take a pass on this one. This was not a very tasty meal. I give it 1 star, just because how easy it was to prepare.

Super easy, inexpensive ingredients and makes a fairly large batch. Very flavorful and my kids just loved it!I  I did not drain the vegetables for extra moisture and only used 2 stalks of celery.

Made this for supper tonight. I did cut back on the celery to 3 large stalks. For those wondering why the recipe does not call for water. Does not need added water, enough mositure from the vegetables. Will make again.
