I loved this recipe. Easy, quick and healthy, not to mention delicious! Could add whatever spices you prefer.

It is a bit bland. I added some dill, which I think helped. Maybe a nice side dish with a summer meal.

Good versatile recipe - as Becky said you can go a lot of different ways with this.

Better with a meat dish.

Great simple recipe as is, but also very versatile. Want more flavor? Increase the fresh basil. Add a little crushed red pepper and garlic.

Not sure what happened but I didnt like this very much. The flavor was too dull for my palatte.
