When my kids were little that's what they called this. When the week was long and the money short, this made a little meat go a long way. I served this with garlic bread. This looks like it takes a long time to make, but it's really easy. I had to guess on the times, so if you try this please let me know how long it takes and i'll adjust it.

This made for a good quick weeknight meal. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add the celery or green pepper.

Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game and what an easy and tasty dish! I followed the instructions except for using fresh garlic instead of the powder. With a good pasta sauce it made for a wonderful dish. Served with Parmesan Zucchini Spears #122893 and a green salad. Thank you for submitting the recipe.
