This dish was fantastic-so easy with lots of great flavor!!! I used dried savory and did not use the bell pepper or cheese- only because I didn't have any-and I added some sliced jalapeno. I served this w/ Recipe #185917 and Recipe #322592 for a DELICIOUS meal. Thank you so much, jovigirl, for a great recipe!!!
