  • I used this as a guide, liked it because it did not have dairy or wine...I used low sodium chicken stock for half the water....and added some fresh spinach which gave it a pretty color contrast. thanks for sharing!! - 6/2/10

  • This was a very good recipe, quick and simple. I did replace 2 of the cups of water with vegetable broth, which gave it a more robust flavor. Other than that, GREAT IDEA with the herbs. THANK YOU! I wrote this on another recipe by accident. This is the actual one I wanted to write it on. - 4/21/10
