    JavaDeb's Note:

    This is based originally on the Joy of Cooking but while making it one day I had to make a few changes based on what I had in the pantry and what I had time to do. I thought it would be weird but it turned out terrific and always disappears quickly. Also makes great leftovers.

      I think this would have been a better recipe with a lot less rosemary in it. The rosemary overwhelmed it and my husband and I both had a hard time eating it. I think without the rosemary it would have tasted good.

      This was easy to make and tasted so good, my husband and my 4 year old son both ate it! And that's not an easy task!! Next time I'll use more meat, but it was very good just as the recipe said.
