I made this recipe for a party. I didn't add the ground beef because there were vegetarians at the party. I made 2 trays and they were gone before I could even taste it! I am told it was awesome. It was simple to make and I plan on using the recipe again.

My family is tired of the same old menus - eating in or out. So I found 'zaar. This was the first dish I made. It was wonderful. My husband and I loved it! Definitely will make again.
