    This was a very nice, healthful dish, and it was very easy to make. It was very good as-is, but next time I think I will experiment with some more spices (probably of the Italian variety) and I will add at least half of the parsley after the casserole is done cooking. By the way, I used regular barley (not the quick-cooking kind), and it worked just fine. Thanks for sharing this!

    I wavered between 5 stars and 4 stars, but finally chose 5. Anyways, I made some changes to this- left out all added salt, and didn't use canned foods. I also used water instead of oil. I didn't chop with cheese, and this was still pretty dang good for a healthy food item. Because I'm an idiot and didn't have basil, I used toni gifford's suggestion of chili powder, which I highly reccomend. I used 1 tsp, but next time I'll probably use like 1 and half. This froze pretty well, and I have plenty left over- this entire recipe made abou 13 cups; the casserole was full! Anyways, thanks for the recipe.
