I added some broccoli, butter and garlic to the pot. Very delicious! I packaged the leftovers in a container and we are eating the rest tonight.

I use the recipe all the time and put my own little spin on it... I love it!!

It came out better than I thought and it was my 1st time. The only thing is, is that the seasoning starts to dissolve and it boils. So you have to season it more when you're ready to eat it.

This was awesome, I put a bit of a twist on it and left a bit of sauce in it. it really felt like comfort food and everyone loved it.

I used snow crab legs and added shrimp and scallops. It turned out great.
