    This is the first meal I tried on this site and look foward to many more!! I added ground turkey (drained) and used reduced fat cream of chicken with no broth and It was still great, and also filling!!! Thanks - 11/21/08

    Excellent recipe! It's so versatile--it can be the main dish or a side dish, vegetable heavy or with meat. And it's so simple! It's definitely excellent! - 5/30/08

    I couldn't beleive how much this made!! I didn't think it made 16 (1/2 cup) servings but it does. And I know why they are half cup servings becasue it is SOOO filling! You only need a 1/2 cup! - 2/12/08

  • Made it tonight with bacon and onions. Instead of the cream of chicken, I made a cream sauce out of butter (gasp!), flour, and soy milk. I'll definitely make this again! - 1/16/13

  • So easy and so good! The ingredients can easily be found without running to the store and it does not require complicated steps. There is also plenty of left overs to munch on throughout the work week! With endless variations I will definitely be making this dish again soon!!! - 1/7/11

  • I made this for Thanksgiving (followed recipe 100%) and it was not a great hit. It was a bit dry and bland. Thank you for sharing, though! And it did make a lot of servings. - 11/27/10
