It's certainly a very pretty dish, I added a 1/2 can of whole corn to the mix. While it was tasty it did seem to need a little something to take it over the top, couldn't quite put my finger on it. I will still continue to make this dish, as it is attractive (looks like one of those dishes that took all day), it's easy, and tasty but something eludes me. V pls help....lol. And yes it does take two for a family, 2 teens, 2 friends an mom and dad.
