"This was really good. I added 1 cup of the corn and peas since my family is big on the veggies. Will do this one again."

"Its really good with a few changes. I used brown rice (it takes longer to cook) and 1 TBSP creole seasoning. Try Emerill's Essence."

"I have the cook book this came from, and decided to try this last night since I had all the ingredients.

My first clue that this wasn't a real "cajun" dish was the lack of the "trinity" - onions, celery and green peppers. However, I didn't have any green peppers either, so went according to the recipe.
Once baked, the dish was very bland. I ended up nearly tripling the amount of cajun seasoning called for, in order to get some flavor going. I ended up topping it with shredded cheddar cheese to try to do something to give it more flavor, too.
It's still fairly bland, but edible. The rest of the leftovers will get some Louisiana Hot Sauce in them. There are a lot of good veggies in this, but it just didn't cut it for us. If you do try it, I would highly recommend adding diced green peppers, and a can or 2 of diced tomatoes would probably help as well."
