Top Review by Sydney Mike

Since I'm not a big fan of the making of this kind of dish, I did follow the recipe right on down & was pleased with the results, which was another main dish I shared with some neighbors! For us it definitely made enough for 6 & then some ~ Very filling, very satisfying! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current round of Pick A Chef]
