I left out the barley. Thought it was great.

I pretty much made this tonight, without having seen this recipe. Being a casserole, you can change things as you see fit. I used cumin instead of oregano/basil, canned diced tomatoes, canned tomato sauce, no zucchini nor beans, and folded in spinach at the very end. I was awesome! I also used some of it to stuff those mini bell peppers (see photos). They were delicious!

I left out the kidney beans because we aren't bean people and I didn't have any but otherwise this was delicious. Warm and hearty and perfect for a cool evening.

Awesome way to use a bunch of garden veggies! Substituted quinoa for barley, and it really doesn't need the cheese, in my opinion. Wonderful! Thank you!

absolutely loved this! I didn't have kidney beans, so I used canned lentils. Wasn't sure how it would be with the lentils, but it was actually very good!

Great recipe! We really enjoyed this, and liked that the meat/veggie mixture was paired with barley. I added about four more cloves of crushed garlic and put a little shredded parmesan cheese/chives on the top instead of cheddar. Definitely a keeper!

This was a pretty yummy recipe. I used quinoa instead of barley and added more veggies than it called for. The instructions said to bring it to a boil however there was no liquid to boil once all the ingredients were put together so I added some water, maybe a cup or so. I thought the flavors were pretty good, my husband added a little taco sauce for extra flavor/spice and ate it with chips (he needs something crunchy with his food). I would make this again.

This meal was very good! I would recommend adding a little salt to the water for the barley. I was tempted to add more zucchini than the recipe called for but I felt for the first time I should make the recipe exactly as directed. The amount of zucchini was just perfect so I'm glad I didn't add more. Like another reviewer said, the cheese is good but you don't really need it. Beause I have a cholesterol problem, I put a little cheese on part of my meal, then left it off the rest of it. As good as it was I felt it was missing a little something but ketchup took care of that! I will make this again.

Easy dinner. Used cauliflower (only veg I had) and salsa. Terrific. Served it on nacho chips for kids, on a cooked potatoe for healthy option. Really good.

Great Supper!! Not too difficult and lots of healthy tasty flavors. I made it vegetarian by using veggie burger crumbles instead of beef. Super yummy!!
