Delicious and a great side dish for chicken or by itself. I doubled the recipe since I was making it for 4 people, but it couldn't have been quicker to throw together. My teenager the vegetarian loved it and said that I'll have to make this again. The only change I did make was I added in sun-dried tomatoes. It adds a beautiful splash of color and some sweetness to the dish. - 06 May 2013
