Ok - so when my husband comes in to find out what I am cooking because "it smells soooo good", well that gets you 3 stars - automatically, but then you factor in the ease of the recipe and how much we both enjoyed it, it is an easy 5 star meal. I made very few variations, just roasted red peppers (jarred on hand) and added some smoked paprika - it was yummy!
