Comments on this Recipe

I made this tonight for dinner. It was okay, and fairly easy to throw together, but I wasn't blown away. As the main dish it definitely doesn't serve 4 - split between my boyfriend and I we were still hungry after finishing - I'm hoping the nutritional info is for a recipe that serves 2?
