Makes a Great Main Dish

We have made this several times, and usually use it as the main course and have a salad with it. I use fresh vegetables and leave out the boullion. Fresh adds some texture and you don't have to worry about adding water from the frozen veggies

Wonderfully easy!

I recently tried this recipe and I must say I was impressed with how easy and delicious it is! I have already made it a couple of times and will continue to make it. I love it!
