"I have been making a variation of this recipe ever since it came out years ago. I usually substitute broccoli florets for the beans. I found it needed spices and salt."

"We both thought this was rather bland - definitely needs some seasoning - Also think it would be better with the cheese mixed in with the soup mixture rather than just on top or maybe use a white sauce instead of the soup - and add the cheese to that. I may try it again with some added spices."

"Used a homemade white sauce instead, and Parmesean cheese. Perfect!"
