This was so easy! I loved that I could use frozen veggies, though I mixed it up and used a different mixture. Served this for dinner with a rotisserie chicken - one dish to clean and leftovers to boot!


I made this dish as a side dish. It was okay but I wasn't extremely impressed. After following the directions exactly (except adding a few minutes cooking time) I wasn't to excited about serving this. I tasted it and decided to add some sour cream as another rater had suggested. I also added some cilantro which improved the taste. However, I found the dish to be to heavy even before my additions. On a positive note, the men in my family liked this and returned for seconds and my grown daughter said it tasted like something she had in a restaurant at some point, and did not like it then either.


Made this exactly to the recipe, except it had to simmer for 15 minutes instead of 10. It was a hit. Grandkids loved it. I may try this with Parmesan or blue cheese next time for an added kick in flavor.
