READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by loof751

My mom was cleaning out one of her closets and came across several folders full of recipes that she had clipped from magazines and newpapers over the years. This came from the Houston Post (no longer in circulation) 1990. The article was promoting a cookbook by Bon Appetit called "Too Busy to Cook". This is a nice, quick and easy meal!
