This recipe takes me back to 1958 and my Mothers kitchen. We thought this was very exotic food from the Far East way back then. Ultimate comfort food for me and my sisters. Yummy!!Thanks for sharing.

This has always been a favorite of mine! I use cream of celery soup and most often don't use the cashews. It will even work stove top if you're REALLY pressed for time. It's just a terrific, fast and economical meal. Thanks for posting this!
