"It sounded really good but it was completely tasteless. I tried to spice it up by adding red pepper flakes but I would never make it again."

"Easy to prepare, and simply delicious. As Lynn-deana suggested, I did add a few red pepper flakes, and used the canned diced tomatoes as suggested by Eilley. My husband loved it!! Even better, less than 400 calories per serving!!"
