This really hit the spot with us last night. I made 2 servings and the amount was just right for us. If you have anyone with a hearty appetite (I'm thinking teen male or a hubby who works hard) it would likely be enough for 1. Really good flavor and texture, I think I would call it top notch comfort food. I would certainly make this again. :D
