Top Review by woodland hues

this is a great dish! I tried it the other night using ground chicken, halved the recipe, and we were delighted with the presentation. An excellent choice with rice and a green salad. Very easy to prepare. My husband's just been diagnosed a diabetic so I KNOW I'll make this recipe again and again!
