I made it exactly as the recipe stated, and this was very good. Good combination of flavors with a nice texture. It's very hearty, so it could almost be a meal itself. A little time consuming for a weeknight (due to all the chopping and the 30-minute bake time).

Made this for the 2nd time last night; it was just as delicious as the 1st time that I made it. However, I did take the salt down by about 1/4 tsp.; just my personal preference.

Made this for a potluck and everyone loved it! Super easy and looked wonderful right out of the oven. I will certainly make this again :)

This was a huge hit at our dinner party last night. I paired with grilled bone-in porkchops. Everyone loved it. I used shaved parmesan cheese because that is all my grocery store had at the time and it really made a nice presentation. Even our kids devoured it! I doubled it into a 13x9 pan and it came out perfect after 45 minutes in the oven.

Delicious! I added tomato and a little cheddar on top. I think you can use virtually any vegetables you have around the house or that are in season.

Meh . . .
