This recipe is nearly the same as a recipe of the same name I found in the Kraft What's Cooking magazine, Winter 2006 edition - the only difference was the addition of 1 1/2 pounds of potatoes cut into large chunks. Although this is a nice recipe, it lacks a little bit of flavour - maybe some garlic salt or basil would perk it up.
