I tried this tonight and I loved it. It was very good, rich and had lots of different flavors. Opinions...

*Chad didn't think it was very filling but he never gets excited about anything I cook.
*Hayden loved the crawfish but wouldn't touch the part with the broccoli.
*Parker loved the rice part but wouldn't touch the crawfish.
*Chad's mom loved it!

I put some in the refrigerator for tomorrow and then I have frozen the rest.

Angela told me how great this was, so I had to try it. Not being much of a cook, it was really a pretty easy recipe to follow.
Angela recommended that I add fresh mushrooms, which I did, and they were really good in it.
We just had bread and I made brownies for dessert! This recipe reminds me of broccoli casserole with crawfish or the stuffing in stuffed chicken. (You could probably do that with it)
Overall, I think it was pretty good. Jon liked didn't, but they don't usually like anything but McDonald's Happy Meals!
Thanks for sharing the recipe, Destiny!
