I made this last night and my whole family loved it (even my 3 picky children). I made it exactly as the recipe was written.

This is a very easy and comforting meal. I did add salt and pepper, and a diced green pepper to the dish when I prepared it. I served it with wide yolkless noodles and green beans. My family raved about the dish. I am sure it will be fixed often here. Thanks so much for posting.

Okay...I thought about not even posting a review...but I didn't feel that was right. I'm sorry but hubby and I didn't care much for this...something just wasn't right. The flavor was not what we had thought it might be. Others have enjoyed it so it must just be OUR tastebuds.
