This is one of my most shared recipes! Everyone loves this one, even my Sister-in-law who does not like ground meat. Leftovers are great too. A comfort food for your whole family or next party. Can be made ahead.

I agree that this went together very quickly and made up a beautiful presentation...I made exactly as directed, but next time I will add a little extra heat to it by adding a few red pepper flakes. Great recipe. Thanks for posting!!!
