    I really enjoyed this. We made it for lunch while my husband was at work - he would have wanted chicken or something with it. My daughter thaught it was a little dry so she added a few tablespoons of spaghetti sauce to her bowl. - 5/17/10

    This was good, but just not very filling. I think adding some chicken would solve that problem. - 11/6/07

    I've made this several times, and enjoyed it both hot and cold as a salad.
    I marinated the vegetables ahead of time in the Italian dressing ---fatfree of course, but you could make your own with a good EVOO-- and added grated lemon zest for a real kick. I also used fresh thyme leaves. - 11/1/07
