Easy, tasty, one dish meal. I followed the recipe exactly and my husband and I both enjoyed it. Unlike other reviewers, I found the cooking time accurate. My only criticism is the number of servings. I would say it feeds four, not eight.

I was not impressed with this dish. I didn't think it had all that much flavor. And like another poster said, it took twice as long to cook.

While it does have good flavor, the dish took twice as long to cook as recommended. It was disappointing for my family who were hungry!
