      I have not made this as an OAMC meal... but that is probably because DH can't keep his hands off it long enough for it to reach the freezer, lol. I want to try this with meat in it next time to make it a one-dish dinner because my only complaint is its a little complicated as just a side! My parents both love it too!

      I thought this was great, I also added some chicken sausage to it for a little added protein.
