"I was so disappointed by this recipe! Taste of Home rarely disappoints, but this time it did. No flavor. Not worth the effort.

"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."

"<p>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.</p>"
