READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Troop Angel

This yummy recipe comes from Rachael Ray...I saw her make it one night on "30 Minute Meals" and I couldn't wait to try it. It makes a lot, so it's perfect for the hungry kids and DH! Don't let the number of ingredients or the steps fool you...this is a quick and easy meal to make on a busy weeknight!
