I serve this dish both ways, usually as a side dish. However, when it is only hubby and I, we would have it as a light dinner with a small side salad or two.
Double the recipe when you have more guests ! When my kids are home, I do, and the doubled recipe is enough as a light dinner.
No extra Salt is added as the Soup Powder is salty enough for the whole dish.
