  • AMAZING!!!! I substitutes a can of fire roasted tomatoes (with juice drained) for the chopped tomato and used fresh spinich instead of watercress. The whole family loved it! It tastes like a restaurant meal :-) Thanks for posting this! - 4/19/10

  • Pretty good. Will make again with a couple changes, for example replacing feta for the goat cheese. I think the flavor would be better in this case. - 12/7/09
