Sooooo good! I love this. Easy to make, easy to clean up. It's nice to find a good recipe that uses something besides chicken or hamburger.

No one liked this in my family - we also had to throw it out because I couldn't stand to watch them gagging on it any longer so I didn't dare serve it again...

Everyone raved about this recipe - even my super picky 11- year old son. He's been begging me to make it again.

Perfect for those nights where I don't feel like doing too much work in the kitchen. Two easy steps steps where i can just throw it all in? Awesome, and there were plenty left over for the hubby to bring to the office next day!

This was very unappetizing. Ended up throwing out.
