Recipe by Kristiina

This is a side dish that I have not tried yet, but it looks so good. It makes 6 side servings but it you could easily add cooked chicken to it to make it a main dish for 4.

This worked well for my family. I added garlic like a previous reviewer suggested, and I thought it was a good addition. Maybe next time I'll try adding cheese as also was suggested. So many possibilities! But all in all, this is a very tasty dish that goes together really quickly. And my kids loved it as much as DH and I loved it. Made for Kid Friendly tag game Jan 2009.
