"We eat gluten free so we replaced the ravioli with gluten free noodles. My daughter also grabbed the frozen peas out of the freezer instead of the frozen green beans. So we substituted peas. Very delicious, easy to prepare & filling!"

"Great combination!-I didn't have green beans so I used green pepper and a few green onions-I can see this with sliced olives too."

"This is very good. I microwave the leftovers for a few seconds to take the chill off it as I prefer it to eat it warm."
