    ChefDLH's Note:

    Some nights you need a budget friendly, fast hearty meal that, when paired with a salad or vegetable, will keep the family from getting take out or heading for fast food. This is an easy meal with ingredients you likely may have in the pantry, paired with meat and fresh onions. This is a kid guarantee. In our house it is perfect on sports nights or when work goes late. This is from Pillsbury's Come & Eat magazine cookbook Summer 2002. Enjoy ChefDLH
