I grew up with this recipe and because I make it often never realized how simple this would be for others to make. It is a favorite in our house, hope it becomes one in yours. It is a one dish wonder!amounts can vary for taste or serving size. I make extra even though only 3 of us here so I have it for lunch or leftovers. Freezes well.
