this recipe was pretty flavorless and the veggies since they are frozen are mushy by the time you reheat them in the oven, and also get worse as you microwave leftovers. I did like the idea of cutting biscuits in half to make the crust to save some calories.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup beef mixture and 2 biscuit halves)
