This was a VERY tasty dish , I did everything as written with the exception of adding mushrooms. If you're a mushroom lover, they'd make a great addition , I'm sure! Easy to make and like I said, very tasty. I was a TINY disappointed in the way it came out after adding the *white sauce* if you want to call it that. In the pan, right before that point, it looked SO colorful and so healthy. I might make this again and leave the white sauce out completely! ;) Thanks for submitting!!
