Top Review by Toppats

Very good one dish meal. I agree that there is quite a bit of prep involved but if you have the time it is worth it. I liked it because my cupboard was pretty bare but I had all these ingredients. It is also something out of the ordinary and that is always nice. I cut down the half and half with milk and it was still very good so that could cut a few fat calories...
