This recipe was found in the 2009 Debbie Macomber's Cedar Cove Cookbook. I've tweaked it slightly to make sure it suits the eating habits of my vegetarian son & DIL!

This was great. I used lots of lemon pepper, frozen broccoli, and chicken broth instead of vegetable, because that was what I had on hand.
