Not sure where this recipe came from...I found it when cleaning out my "To Try" box of recipes. I made it for supper last night, and found it to be quick, easy and tasty.

Just made this today for my family and a few daycare kids. Everyone liked it and had seconds even though I forgot to add the cheese! I'm printing the recipe to give to their mom since it is so simple and her kids like it. I'm assuming the 12 tea. of garlic powder means 1/2? Same with the pepper?
