A wonderful combination of flavors and color. Quick and easy for week day meals and a wonderful entree for a dinner party. Joining Zaar has reunited me with many old favorites long lost in my 35 year old collection of recipes. This recipe, written on the back of a sales slip, probably came from a doctor's or dentist's office as I looked through magazines while waiting to be seen.
