This was an easy recipe to make and everyone in my family, even my kids, enjoyed it! The only thing I would change when I make it again, is to add either canned tuna or canned chicken. I'm not exactly sure how much would be needed, though. It doesn't necessarily need them added, because it was great just the way I made it! My husband thought it needed "something more" to make it a meal.
