I do believe that I have a brand new favorite. I made this yesterday as a lunch dish and it was hard to stop with my allotted portion! I just kept on wanting "just one more bite". Fortunately, it's nicely diabetic friendly and that makes the wonderful flavors, mouth feel and satisfaction all the more appealing. Thank you, my friend, for this marvelous keeper recipe.
