I wanted to have a "nice", romantic dinner with my DH and came up with this. It's handy because you can use your choice of veggies!

My husband and I both agree...5 Stars! This recipe is a 'keeper'...its delicious and easy to make. The bacon really makes this dish outstanding. One day I 'cheated' and added a small can of Rotel. :) Yummy! Thanks, LuckyMomof3 for sharing your recipe.
