A gorgeous blend of everything I love, healthy vegetable meal, which has a meaty texture to satisfy every food lover, spicy, creamy, cheesy...this is pure indulgence and comfort without all the worry of fat and calories!!!

Mine and my three children's favorite! :) can feed four greedy people as a main meal, eight people as a medium meal with side dish or sixteen people as start, or main with many side dishes...........very nice, for least cost!!! I am single divorced mum, bringing three children up on my own; this kind of food is a life saver!!!
