This was an easy recipe. It just lacked flavor. Maybe using additives such as, sauted mushrooms would help.

I too followed the recipe but added some leftover ham for a one dish meal. I did leave out the thyme. It's not a family favorite. Substituted with a bit of rosemary which I added to the aspar...

Great recipe, easily adaptable for type of meal and personal tastes. I wanted a main entree that was all inclusive. I made the recipe as presented with these additions: Sauteed fresh, sliced ...

This came out looking and tasting excellent, and for how little effort it took, I give it a "wow"!
