FOR the first time in 23 years, I'm again cooking for two. It's quite an adjustment, but I'm getting adept at making the changes. But my husband and I enjoy this delicious dish—with meat, potatoes and vegetables, it's a meal in itself. —Eva Knight Nashua, New Hampshire

"We really like this one. I added a little sage and thyme to season. I'm also going to cut down the amount of potatoes in future versions - 4 potatoes was a bit much for us."
