These were really very good - they got rave reviews at my house which isn't very common with my "makeover" type recipies. Sonya Ocala FL Read More

These were very easy to make and quite tasty. I didn't use the mushrooms as I am not a fan and it still turned out great. They reheat well too. Ashley Charlotte NC Read More

It was a little too vinegar tasting for us so next time I won't add as much. Otherwise it was very good and even my mushroom hating husband brought the leftovers for his lunch! Alisa Monroe WA Read More

I should have read more of the reviews before I made this. I would definitely omit or lower the amount of vinegar. I was drinking white wine so maybe that added to the fact that all I tasted was vinegar? But I would make this again and leave out vinegar. Also I used a can of diced tomatoes and thickened it with cornstarch and water. My hubby and two year old are eating it up. Read More

The flavors in this recipe hit the spot. I did use ground turkey meet with a dash of Worcestershire sauce and a little salt and pepper to begin the dish. I also added a small or 15 oz can of crushed organic fire roasted tomatoes instead of the chopped plum tomatoes. This will indeed be a "go to" big treat for us. Read More
