This is a great recipe. I will be making this over and over. So easy and delicious. Add some cooked chicken and it's a full meal. Wonderful recipe.

We loved this as a side dish with sausage and mushroom ravioli. I added some sautéed onion and a touch of hot pepper flakes to the mixture. Definitely will make this again!
