"Very delicious. It's a favorite of mine to take to a potluck. The dish always comes home empty."

"My whole family liked this. I substituted the turkey for chicken that I had on hand and left out the salt, pepper and pine nuts. The parmesan cheese added enough extra flavor for us. I will definitely file this in the recipe box to use again. It was very easy."
