    A favorite now! I added green pepper and ground turkey to the saute. Perfect with a little parmesan sprinkled on top. - 8/10/09

    This was delicious tonight. I tweaked it to my specifications. Delicious!!! I REALLY love these recipes; so far, EVERY meal has been a winner. I cut it in about half, so there are no leftovers. That discourages grazing, too! Thank you! Never found so many great recipes! - 7/9/09
