    This wasn't bad. It was very easy to make, but not much in the way of flavour. I added chicken and cheese and found it quite nice. It's not something I would make for other people, but if I'm home alone and want something easy to make, I might make this again. Definitely not without the chicken and cheese though, without them I don't think it's nice at all.  -  10 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
