Well, even though I'm a vegetarian, I had to try this because my husband and 11yo son said it was a little bland. (I thought it smelled good!) I think it's good, but maybe it is a little subtle. My son also suggested it may have been overpowered by the spices of Recipe #290795 that I served with it. Reviewed for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag.
