A healthier version of a fabulous recipe I found on this site. Replaced a few items and added a few others. Don't want to call it "diet food", but most ingredients are what I use when dieting.

Absolutely delicious. I made this for supper tonight. My finicky son had seconds and thirds. He will usually pass the veggies. The only change I made was I used lean ground chicken breast and a jar of chicken gravy. Can't wait for leftover lunch tomorrow
