READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Denise Durinzi

I like this recipe because it is really easy and economical. My Mom used to make it for us when she couldn't stand to make potatoes or rice one more time.

Very easy and very good. The only thing that I did differently was to add some Pecorino Romano cheese. Everyone loved it.
