Top Review by tornadoes three

I chose this recipe for ZWT3- the freezer pleasers! Great recipe, it has great flavor, a wonderful mix of vegetables and spices. I chose to leave out the aspargus tips (i am not fan of this vegetable) what I liked about this recipe is that it is versatile, you can leave out or add vegetables that please your palette. Oh yeah, it freezes very well too! Thanks Miss Erin!
