This is a recipe that we used a lot when I was away in college. It's simple and fast. We could throw this together and after class it was ready and we could have a hot meal!!

Really easy and pretty tasty. I feel it needed a little more in the way of flavoring but I would definetely make it again. Thanks for a great week night recipe!
