I was looking for a healthy and creative way to use up some things I had in the pantry. I like this recipe because it is so easy to prepare, very he4althy, and everyone in the family likes it. It is great for a family meal, as party fare, or to take to a pot luck. I also like it because you can feed a lot of people with a few inexpensive ingredients.
