    This is the second time making it. I made it dairy-free for someone who is gluten and dairy free and she loved it. It’s very flavorful and nutritious.

    I thought this recipe was bland and didn't care for the zucchini, but that's what my husband loved about it! He loved the crispness of the veggies. I added extra onion and S&P, but it was still kind of blah.

    Extra emphasis to prepare the groats in the directions rather than just the ingredients would have saved us from a crunchy casserole, but it is still yummy and a keeper!

    It’s ok. Added in salt and pepper since it didn’t call for ANY at all. Not a fan of the aged cheddar, might have liked regular cheddar or Gouda better.

    This is easy and delicious. I added some other seasonings to make sure it wasn't bland.

    We thought this recipe had potential. I doubled the amount of spices, but it was a little on the bland side. I’m going to try it again using sweet Italian turkey sausage.

    Really delicious and kids loved it too! However I had to add hot sauce because it was a little bland!

    This is one of my go-to healthy dinner recipes. It's quick and easy to make, and you can easily add other veggies. I usually add yellow squash and more zucchini than called for. In my opinion, the fresh basil makes a huge difference in taste. Definitely recommended.

    Love when I find a recipe my family will eat and asks for me to make again. The cheese on hand on hand was light pepper jack & cheddar cheese mix.

    Love this! It is healthy, but still has my cheese! The leftovers last for 4 days, and my husband eats A LOT.

    Yummy! Quick and healthy dinner and great way to use veggies from the garden. Making this again. Even my picky toddler ate it!
