    This is a good recipe, I doubled it and I found that I did not have the ranch dressing but I had the dry ranch dressing mix and sprinkled it on, and I added a bit more mayo, and a tsp of milk and it was great! Second time, I added some extra vegtables, like small broccoli flowrettes(just the tiny ends) and defrosted frozen english peas.Yummy! This is a keeper recipe, thnks for sharing.  -  29 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I liked it a lot and it was quick and easy to make. I think it would be better with a little more ingredience added in; it was just a little plain.  -  02 Jul 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
