The Review: 
Needed something else.  
Some of the recommendations were to add 1/2 tsp of cumin, I however was fresh out so I couldn't.  I did however, bake the dish for 30 minutes, then sprinkled breadcrumbs on top, baked again for an additional 15 minutes.  The dinner was good but it wasn't my favorite.  In my attempt to cut carbs I only served this with a salad.  It would have gone well with pasta or rice.  There is a lot of sauce in the dish and would have been great with some carbs! :)
One recommendation was to put rice in the dish first before the other ingredients, however I'm not sure there would have been enough liquid for the rice to be cooked correctly.

Anyway, that's that, it was good, but I liked it more than anyone else in the family... and honestly we've had a lot of broccoli lately so it's time to give it a break!
