Fast, easy, and delicious, just as advertised! Even my 4 and 7 YO DS both at them! Made them with steak and red potatoes with onions. Delicious meal and I didn't have to heat up my kitchen with the wall oven! Thanks for posting!
Delicious! I love cooking veggies in the microwave -- they come out so green and firm. I used the 1/2tb of garlic powder on about 1-1/2lbs of frozen beans and skipped the breadcrumbs because DH is diabetic. But I added a little extra Parmesan to mimic the texture.
These were really tasty. I loved that they were made in the microwave. It made them quick and easy to make. Will be making these again. I followed the recipe exactly as written but I didn't add the optional pine nuts. I made two versions of this recipe, one with the bread crumbs and one without as I eat low carb. Next time I will make only one batch without breadcrumbs.
