    I can't get the stars to work right, they seem to limit me to only 3 stars, but I thought that this recipe was better than that. I followed the recipe exactly and my son, who is 39, really liked it a lot.

    Didn't add the cikantro and liked it, but it seemed to need something. May try adding basil if I make it again.

    Easy, quick, light meal. I liked the idea of adding spinach, will add a little more next time. I used shaved Parmesan and added a few spices.

    This is a quick and lovely meal. I kept it warm in a crockpot to serve at a buffet. You would easily impress company with this one. The flavors are light and refreshing, and could be easily tweaked to suit individual tastes

    Love this fast meal! I substituted parmesan for feta and about a cup of spinach for the cilantro to make it a one pot meal.
