My mom used to make this a lot since it is quick and the ingredients were always on hand in our house, it refrigerates and reheats well and can be frozen up to 3 months.

This was a lovely and easy oamc meal. I added more paprika and found that the flavour lacked a little something for me, but I'm certainly going to make it again and tweak it to my tastes. I used half light cream and half light milk for this, to make it a little less fattening.
