MY REVIEW

"I can see the possibilities for this dish, but it certainly needed more seasoning. As one of the reviewers said, salsa would be a great addition."

"I did not like this very much. It definitely needs more seasoning."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 11, 2015

"Delicious! I added salt, pepper and fresh garlic to the vegetables as other users suggest. It definitely makes two pies and I even cut back on the vegetables (used half the broccoli and onion, half a green and red pepper only). My pie crusts were not deep dish however."
