"I really loved this recipe! It was easy and flavorful...I never have leftovers when this is made! Some of my family preferred not to have sun-dried tomatoes, but either way it tastes great!"

"Made with Silk Soymilk... A bit boring. Extra salt made it edible, but I was rather disappointed. Perhaps my tomatoes needed to be chopped smaller, because they do enhance the flavor."
