"Very good! I had to do some improvising as I didn't have mushrooms and the asparagus I bought at Aldi's was gross when I opened the package, so I just added some extra zucchini. We had it as our main course and even though I don't like the idea of Meatless Monday meals, I must admit this was a very hearty meal served with sliced tomatoes, a salad and one of my homemade oatmeal dinner rolls. It was quick and easy and made a big skillet full meaning my hubby and I get to enjoy it again another night this week--perhaps as a side dish this time."

"I really enjoyed this dish and served it with grilled salmon. The only change I made was to leave out the mushrooms and slightly increase the zucchini."

"Made this for dinner, my 2 year old actually ate her entire plate (minus the mushrooms, which she is not a fan of), hubby loved it. It was good over all. i think next time I'm going to leave the mushrooms out, they have to strong of a taste, didn't blend well to me."
