    Yum! I like it a lot. My kids ate it and didn't complain. Not to bad coming from kids that don't eat veggies! I didn't have the soy protein so did without. - 2/19/09

    I made this a few nights ago when I really wanted some comfort food and it was excellent!!! I left out the soy protein and added ground turkey instead, but it was still wonderful. I will definately add this to my menu! - 8/15/08

  • I loved it. I had to add a little creole seasoning for taste and added some beef sausage.
    I will be making it for the second time late tonight and let it cook overnight.
    Thanks - 10/29/11
