      This dish deserves a better name! It is a great all-around dish: economical, easy to prepare, makes a lot of servings and, best of all, tastes wonderful. This recipe and a recipe from Melissa d'Arabian are my favorite recipes from the internet. So give it the respect it deserves....a name that reflects its rock star status in the homecooking world!
