This makes a tasty lunch or snack. We had this prepared by a local caterer for a meeting and it went over very well.

I needed a side dish for dinner and I had asparagus and mushrooms in the firdge that needed to be used up.  I found this recipe and followed it except for adding the english muffin.  It was very good!  I recommend it with or without the muffin.
