These are delicious! They were so easy to throw together, and after cooking them for 16 minutes they came out very tender and flavorful. I think next time I might try adding some additional spices, like rosemary. Thanks for an easy weeknight side dish!

These were good and easy to make. Mine took 15 minutes in the microwave. It was a nice and easy side dish.

Made these exactly as written. They were very good and easy to prepare. Roasted potatoes in the oven are a bit better, but these were great in a pinch.
