I turned this tasty cheap meal into a vegetarian meal for my boyfriend and myself. I doubled the vegetables, adding things like fresh broccoli and frozen baby lima beans to the mix, and using thinly sliced fresh carrots instead of frozen, swapped the chicken broth for homemade vegetable stock and added half a bay leaf, occasionally some dried sage. The result is a delicious meal that I can have for lunches or dinners throughout the week. I personally prefer butter to margarine, but to each his own. Overall, it's not gourmet food or anything of the sort, but it costs next to nothing, tastes great, and takes only 25 minutes to prep cook and serve.
