My latest take on a favorite Faye Levy recipe. The recipe is metric, but you can use the Zaar magic button to convert to Imperial.

This was good and nice and simple. I too didn't have time to put it into the oven and so let it sit on the stove top a bit longer - I added some chilli paste to mine as well. A comforting recipe
