YUM! This recipe is very easy and is absolutely delicious. My family loves it, and I have made it for others as a "don't worry about cooking after coming home from the hospital with a new baby" meal -- and I have received rave reviews for my efforts! Even my picky eater loves it, so you can't go wrong here!
