I made this recipe for dinner a couple weeks ago and it was fabulous! It made a large pan and filled up my hungry teenagers who declared it was delicious. With that I knew I had to share it with all of you.
Not only is it delicious and pleases the palate of a starving teen it is easy to prepare and thrifty too.
