This recipe came from a Gourmet Magazine years ago. I have continued to make it thru the years. It always seems to satisfy my family. I sometimes serve this over rice and sometimes with a side of mashed potatoes. Nice hearty meal. I find it easy to double the recipe and freeze half for an easy dinner another time.
