    Chef #426229 Picton43's Note:

    This recipe is from the Milk Calendar which I receive annually. It is a one pot recipe which I made often when I was working, and still come back to when I need a "comfort food" dish. The ingredients can be varied to suit your family's taste. I don't use the chili powder and usually let simmer for about 25 min over med low heat with occasional stirring.

      Great Dish! Though the we would have preferred it a little "saucier", it had a great flavor. I doubled the red pepper flakes, and used 1/2 Parmesan 1/2 Mozzarella. And I added a diced green bell pepper (I have too many, and have been putting them in everything lately). Thanks for sharing your recipe, it's a definite keeper! Made for My 3 Chefs Nov. 08.
