"Great basic recipe. I added peas instead of green pepper, garlic, a splash of sherry and a dollop of sour cream."

"Great recipe, clear and simple. The only thing I added was a touch of tarragon. The family raved, so I will make it again. I like simple recipes so I can add my personal touch once I am used to making it."
