This was very good. A great one dish meal, and hearty. I hadn't read the other reviews first and mine didn't come out salty, but I used rock sea salt and just measured in my hand, so probably didn't add the full tbsp.

Awesome! Better than I expected. Flavors are different enough that it is a unique dish. I love that you can make it and get everything cleaned up while it is cooking for an easy clean up meal, with a cool presentation. It was not dry at all.
