Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. This is a lovely makeover of a tried-and-true recipe I've used for all of my married life (almost 10 years). With the ranch flavoring, it dresses it up and makes it a great recipe for weekends or a special company meal. I love it because the prep time is very low. I can pop it in the oven and pull out a meal that looks and tastes like it took me hours to prepare. Over a bed of rice with a side salad or green vegetable, it makes an attractive display.
