I make this at least once a month for around 12 people. Have gotten nothing but compliments for it.

I think that it could have been better if a can of soup or broth was added, and maybe some more spices. But we didn't starve, so it was ok.

This was a nice filling-but-not-overstuffing dinner, though not particularly memorable to my taste buds. It would probably go on our "easy filling dinner with a variey of ingredients -- make occasionally" list, but our not very picky 3-year-old would not try it, and it wasn't appealing enough to the grownups to be worth putting together a separate kid dinner so we could eat it. But it's worth trying on your own family if you need more easy casserole ideas.
