This is really good, has all the things that we eat most often! Made as is and topped with a combo of parmesan and ramano cheese. We have tons of leftovers (probably because our family of 4 is 2 adults, a 4yr old and a 1yr old) so DH will eat well for lunch next week. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag March 2010.
