"I made this for dinner last week because it sounded quick. My hubby normally doesn't care too much for anything with pasta in it, but he had three helpings of this, and declared it a keeper! I passed the recipe on to my son and daughter-in-law, who made it for their kids. They all loved it! Definitely a recipe that I will make again and again! Thanks for sharing!---Dutchcook1949"
