When money was tight, mom used to make this for us. Cheap eats and also a favorite with my kids.

Left the green pepper out bc I knew the kids would not eat it. Other than that, I followed the recipe. Kids weren't even going to try it, but I told them they had to. They did not like it at all; I thought it was ok. My kids are NOT picky eaters, so I was very surprised they didn't like this one. I thought this was going to be a winner for my house. Thanks for sharing, Di. Steph
