I was not paying attention and mixed the water in with the vegetables, then baked it all together without cooking it as directed. Loved it, no complaints, I made it again and did it the same way since it worked out the last time. Thanks for great recipe, I will be making this often.

I've been making this one for awhile. Always good and an easy one to put together. Makes a great vege side dish and goes with most anything.

This was so easy and required very little prep. We had it with the Moroccan-Spiced Chicken Paillards, and there wasn't a crumb left! I only wish I had made a bigger pan. This will be made again and again in my home. Thanks for a great, easy recipe!
