"A good recipe to upgrade plain old frozen mixed veggies. So much better!"

"This was made on 6/24 as part of our dinner. Except for using a 12 oz. bag of mixed veggies and subbing margarine for the oil, the recipe was made as written. I do think however that there was too much of the parsley. But I also think that this recipe would be a very good way to use up leftover veggies. " Keep Smiling :)"

"This is great if you're looking for a quick, cheap veggie side dish for a weeknight. I only microwaved the veggies for 10 minutes and they were plenty done enough for me. I will also use less bacon next time; it was just too much."
