This was a pretty good recipe, but it felt like it was lacking tomato! Next time, I'm adding a can of tomato sauce and one of diced tomatoes. Overall good flavor, however. Thanks for the recipe!

I was skeptical at first, but this recipe was fantastic! I like crispy potatoes, so I didn't cover them as they cooked. The dish was yuuuuuummy!
