Delicious and satisfying I substituted orzo for the shell or other style of pasta and it was excellent. It stuck with the 8oz. of pasta and the orzo soaked up the liquids and I ended up with more than four serving for sure. Ha. It was great for lunch the next day as a cold salad!! Pros: Easy quick nutritious Cons: None Read More

A little bland. I used peas since I didn't have lima beans it turned out good! I think if a person wanted to add tuna it would make a really good tuna cassarole sub. Read More

While I like all the ingredients on their own they just didn't work well together in this dish. I found it quite boring and bland tasting. I was really disappointed. Read More
