Wow! Such a simple recipe with ingredients I had on hand...and yet it was SO delicious! Very comforting for a fall supper. I used gala apples because that's all I had and I thought they were perfect. I also doubled the sauce/apple mixture. I served it over orzo with green beans on the side. This will be part of our regular rotation!
