Looking for an entree that’s simple enough to fix on busy weeknights, but special enough to serve company? This scrumptious recipe from Tabetha Moore of New Braunfels, Texas fits the bill. "It goes together in just minutes and uses only four ingredients. We enjoy it at least once every week," she says.
