Meet the Cook: While this special dish is perfect for a company dinner, it's also just too good not to make often for everyday family meals. We think it is very nice served with some crusty rolls or French bread.

"I love to cook, but with teaching school, playing handbells at church and juggling my husband's and teenage twins' schedule, I have little time in the kitchen," says Susan Warren, North Manchester, Indiana. "I'm always looking for one-dish dinners like this one that save time and cleanup."
