    Very good, I added some tomato paste to stuffing mixture and would probably play with it a little more but this was very good and I will make again. Thank you for your idea! - 10/22/09

    very yummy. my whole family enjoyed this recipe. I didn't have any cooked rice so I added 1/4 cup raw rice and increased the water to 1/2 cup. I also added 1 can of chopped tomato juice and all. - 12/20/08
