Wonderful & easy dish. The ingredients were products that are normally on hand. Will definitely make this one again! thx
Just had this for dinner tonight... WONDERFUL!! So easy and the common ingredients make it something that'll be in the regular rotation. Subbed whole wheat flour for white and the "gravy" was still excellent. Other than that the only change was to half the recipe for the two of us. Thanks!
