"Looks a lot better in the picture. We didn't care for this. Not enough flavor."

"To give more flavor, I added a can of Italian diced tomatoes, 1/4 tsp of oregano & 1/4 tsp of crushed fennel seeds. Will definitely make again!!"

"I love this recipe. I've never like sweet potatoes because they are always served with brown sugar and marshmallow. This is a great dish for those who aren't usually big sweet potato fans."
