"I was given a Taste of Home cookbook as a wedding gift 20 years ago, and this recipe was in it. It was one of the first "real" things I ever made as a 21 yr old newlywed. Over the years I've made it many times, sometimes as written, sometimes with leftover homemade sauce, and it's always good. It's easy and a crowd pleaser."
