This is a variation of a recipe that was in Bon Apetit magazine years ago. This is a great dish to prepare for a friend or neighbor when they need a little help! I always get rave reviews.

This was easy, had great flavor, and I almost always have all the ingredients. Husband and sons ate all of it. This will definitely go into regular rotation at my house. Thanks mOm!
