    Was easy and delicious. But will use fresh vegetables next time.  -  06 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Used different ingredients. I used tinned asparagus and tinned mushrooms. Because I had them in the pantry. Sorry Uncle Bill!  -  06 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
