    There was too much broth in this recipe. My husband and I like it but will use half the liquid next time. - 5/17/10

    Unfortunatley, I didn't really like the combination of "dijon mustard and soup broth" with "garlic and olive oil." I think it would have tasted better with no mustard and broth. I give it 2 stars. - 10/17/08

    There are ingredient directions missing. There's no indication of how to split the thyme but towards the end, it says "the remainder of thyme and oil!" The overall taste is ok though. My 15 month old loved it though! - 10/13/19

  • The nutritional information breakdown is for 8 servings, but at the end of the directions it says "serves 4"? Which is correct? If it is4 servings- would I just double the nutrional values for my counts? - 1/29/12
