    Not bad; a little salty, though. Next time I will half the salt, double the raisins, and cook for closer to 25 minutes adding extra water as needed.

    Absolutely delicious. I made it with dried cranberries because I didn't have raisins. It gave the dish a faint sour bite to counteract the sweetness. My 20 month old ate it with delight.

    Very good, easy and filling! It fed 3 of us and I used skim milk in place of the low-fat. I also used cranberries instead of raisins. MMMM!!! A stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal!
