READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Rita1652

I made this with concerns of getting more Calcium into my diet. Almonds have 80 mg per 1 ounce. The almonds toasted up so nice giving this dish great flavor.

Very good & very easy! I even made some and froze them. They thawed & cooked just as well as the fresh batch.
