This is pretty good. it doesn't really set up like a casserole, it's pretty mushy on the plate, but it's rich and tasty. I didn't read the part that said "garnish with tomatoes, olives etc." and kept saying "this would be good with like tomatoes or sour cream". Boyfriend liked it, so I will add this to my casserole repetoire.
