MY REVIEW

My family loves this meal. The only thing I change is I use skim milk and no tomatoes (cuz i usually don't have them on hand). It's tasty, easy to make and healthy.

I make this almost once a week. It's so easy and satisfying. I omit the tomato and put a little more corn and parm cheese. Delish!
