I have given this dish to a friend when she came home from giving birth. Put it with fresh packaged pasta, a salad and the chicken with reheating directions and it will be appreciated.

i didn't eat this but made it for DH and it's 5* all the way for him. i made it exactly as stated except i substituted extra mushrooms for green peppers as he doesn't care much for green peppers. this recipe also took much less than the specified cooking time to come together, so that was an added bonus too.
