This is another one of those I'm hungry but no time to really cook meals.

I was very happy with how this meal turned out. I had everything in my cupboard already so it saved me a trip to the store-however, I didn't have meat so I just left it out. I honestly didn't even miss it. It is a great vegetarian meal also! Very yummy and very easy.
