My husband absolutely loved this recipe! It's a great recipe to add to my repertoire of meatless suppers, yet still provide protein.

Excellent side dish. I have served it to guests and everyone asked for the recipe. A nice twist with the Italian touch...I did up the seasonings (added 1.5 tsp of Italian seasoning and 1/8 tsp. garlic powder and added 1.5 TB of Brooks tangy catsup.) I even froze half of the recipe once (sealed it with my foodsaver after freezing it first in a shallow foil reheated perfectly and no one knew it had been in my freezer for months.) With the former success I have had with this dish, I am taking it to a Christmas Day dinner as a side for ham, making it a day in advance to allow the flavors to mellow before baking it on Christmas.

My husband loved it, I liked it. I think it would be good with some pasta and or "recipe crumbles" (we are vegetarian). It was a little to tomato-y tasting for me. I am wondering how the nutritional values are determined. When I imported this recipe into MyFitnessPal, the calories, fat and sodium were a lot higher than what is on the recipe.
