READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Shannon 24

This is basically a recipe I found in the Looneyspoons cookbook and altered to suit my tastes! So very yummy! Feel free to add whatever you like - sometimes I add chicken, and sometimes I add shrimp!


this was very simple to make. my family enjoyed. I didnt have 2% milk or skim milk so I used whole milk. With that exception I followed recipe to a T. VERY DELICIOUS!!
