Smells divine while cooking, tastes divine while eating. I got this out of a Taste of Home Quick Cooking magazine. Serve with veggie/salad and warm bread.

Thanks Tara, this was so easy and just delicious. I used about 1 t. minced garlic and 1 c. shredded cheddar cheese because we are total garlic-cheese heads. This is a great week-night, need to get out of the kitchen fast recipe. Husband and kids all enjoyed it. Thanks for posting.

This got mixed reviews at my house, but since my opinion counts more than theirs in the kitchen, I give it a five. My mother also loved it, but my husband and boys said it was OK. I may try it again so I can enjoy it and maybe increase the meat and garlic in it to satisfy their spoiled behinds (oops did I say that?).

Good recipe Tara. Easy to make but needed just a bit more flavor for our tastes. Will make again using more garlic and onion.
