I got this recipe out of a Good Housekeeping cookbook and I have made this more times than I can think of. My youngest son loves this.

I have been making this exact recipe for probably 20 + years and it is worthy of the 5 star rating! The sauce is very rich and I usually serve it with rice and broccoli! Follow recipe exactly and you won't be disappointed!
