  • This was pretty good and really healthy. I found it a little bland so the next time I make it I'll add a little spice. - 8/29/10

    I usually add seasonings, but I've found that a lot of people will comment that it was too spicy, too salty, etc. so I started leaving it off the list, or putting "seasoning to taste".

  • This was very good. My son especially liked it. I added 1 T. chili garlic sauce because we like things spicy. - 3/12/09
