"Tasted very delicious even though I didn't cook it long enough. Very simple to make! For me it made about five servings."

"I thought this recipe was great and tasteful, but do not cook for too long or it will be overcooked. It's great to share with friends at a party. I would recommend this recipe. "

"It tastes good but don't cook it for too long. "

Anna  Rated 4 Stars
"I loved this recipe so much I was told to make it one day by my sister and so I made it and I loved it but it didn't feed very many people. It barely fed 4, after that I had to give people about two tablespoonfuls in each cup. If you are making it for more than four people I suggest you make two batches. "
