"I have made this several times since it came out in the magazine years ago. Everyone that has tried it, including me, absolutely loved it!!! I was trying to find the recipe today and couldn't find my copy of the magazine. I am so happy that I found the recipe here. Thank you Taste of Home!"

"This was ok, but not fabulous. I would make it again though, since it was easy and a good way to get some extra vegis."
