    This was really good. We doubled up a lot of ingredients and it still had lots of flavor. Very good recipe. Even our pickier eaters ate it.

    I would personally give this recipe 4 stars as I thought it was very good. However, my family didn't agree. I loved the subtle flavors and how they blended. It was easy to cook and quite economical. They wanted more cheese...I thought it was just perfect.
