Fab, fast, tasty side

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this product and it's a great price on this website. I simply think the Pine Nut variety is a smidge better, so I had to knock a star off of this one. ;) (My mother-in-law strongly prefers the roasted garlic, though, so YMMV.) Fast, easy, one-pot side dish that seems "fancier" than it has any right to be, considering that there are literally fewer steps than even making boxed mac & cheese. What's not to love?
