This is a recipe that I found in promotional cook booklet that different food companies put out. This one uses SPAM of all things. Since there were only 2 of us I cut the recipe in half, but goodness it still makes a lot. I think half would serve 4 or maybe even 6 with a salad and some dinner bread. I'm just listing the ingredients for 4 people. If you need to, it's very easy to double this recipe. As the recipe was written, it used low-fat ingredients, but I didn't have any. I cooked the veggies until they were almost fork tender. Prep time includes the cooking of veggies. This recipe is very easy on the pocketbook--with these ingredients it's only .57 cents a serving, depending on if you use store brand items or items on sale. Submitted to "ZAAR" on March 26,2007
