This was wonderful, my husband who doesn't like to eat healthy enjoyed this :) . I used low fat low sodium chicken broth instead of vegetable, and we couldn't find the dehydrated toms so i used the ones already in olive oil, and didn't cook as long, or add OO. So Yummy! Will make it again. - 11/15/09
