Very good-very easy. Potatoes in a pinch. I also omitted the leeks only because I've never purchased/eaten them. Couldn't even tell you what they look like. But I did add onions to take their place and we liked this recipe alot. Thank you!

OMG, I had made this a couple months ago and lost the recipe. Thought it was so simple I would remember how to make it. NOT. Thank you for posting this, now I can keep it on hand. I remember omitting the leeks and bell pepper because the boys don't care for it. But the parmesan was a hit. Thanks again for sharing. This is a keeper. So simple! ~V
