I love love love this recipe. The only thing I do differently is make a slurry out of Masa and water to thicken the broth. Makes it thicker plus adds mucho flavor.

They were OK... I used my mandolin, which i think sliced them too thin, and some got super crispy, while others were still wobbly. I still will bake fries however mainly because of it is healthier!

This was very delicious. I did use 5 tomatoes and almost a whole garlic clove. I also used whole grain penne instead of the regular. Oh! And I also cut up and sauteed some chicken and added it.
Great meal! Definitely a keeper.

This was delicious. I forgot to purchase the arugula or the spinach and I didn't miss it one bit. Served this with some whitefish fillets, and the DH and I scarfed it down. Best part? On Weight Watchers, this was a 7 point meal with the fish.

I liked the chicken. That was about it. I disliked the sauce (tasted like ketchup) and I disliked the cous-cous. I would not make this again.

Eh... This was OK. But was I expecting super yummy, full fat mashed potatoes? No. I had to keep adding a little bit of this, and a little bit of that herbs & seasonings to make them not so bland. It was an OK substitute for mashed potatoes.

This recipe was super delicious. I did not care for the sugar in the breading, and I did have to make another batch of breading, and for that I used half wheat and half panko. Sooo good. I planned just plain baked chicken for chicken Parmesan later this week..but now I think it is getting breaded!!!!

I thought that these were ok... I was disappointed in the filo crust, as the pies were so nuclear that they had to cool for awhile, and so the crust just sogged into the filling. DH liked it, but that might have been because I gave him way more layers than 3.

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe...it was fantastic!!! I think next time I will add some hot pepper flakes to make it slightly spicy. Very good...I WILL be making this again.
