    Not a fan, sorry. It had very little taste and was overly creamy/mushy. I used cream of mushroom--hopefully cream of chicken would work better. If I had any feta, I may have added that too for just some flavor. - 5/8/13

    "Another winner" per my husband! My 6 year old liked it (once I removed the tomatoes) and I liked the simplicity of it! Thanks for sharing!! - 2/3/09
