I loved this dish. I added a can of corn, and thought it would be really good with black olives and sour cream as a topping. I will be making this a lot more! (It is just as good re heated for lunch) and oh so healthy. Truly a great vegetarian dish, ...moreiheartmyfamily in loved it
I make this often at our house. My husband and I just love it! I usually add browned, low-fat hamburger or ground turkey to the recipe to make it a one-dish meal.susansunde in loved it
