"Very good. Nice presentation. Could use a

little something for more flavor, but I am not experienced enough to know what that
would be."

"I made this for a get together and it was okay. I am not sure if I would do it again. I had a hard time with the shells not holding up and did not taste like what I expected. Worth a try to make though, very simple."
