MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 1, 2014

This is sooo good. My boys decided they wanted to go vegetarian for a month, and I could really lose some weight. While I was making this I thought it would be good with parmesan cheese, but I tasted it first. No need to add cheese.

MY REVIEW

I did double the sauce ingredients (flour, seasonings and cream) because I had added close to twice the veggies the recipe called for. Came out perfect! We will be making this one a lot!

This is an easy meal to make. It is light with a lot of great taste for the summer. Thumbs up.
