Recipe by Michelle S.

I was given this recipe by a former coworker who was Armenian. Whenever I bring the leftovers to work for lunch, everyone is popping into the breakroom to see what smells so delicious!

I had no idea cumin would make this meal so good! Super easy and super yummy! Served this over pasta and was very pleasantly surprised. Great recipe!
