WHEN I was married 45 years ago, my mother gave me this recipe. I always prepared this dish when we had company because it never failed and was so good! Through the years, it became one of my family's favorite meals, and now I still often fix it for just the two of us. Whenever I do, my husband and I get to enjoy the bonus of leftovers! -Emma Nye, New Oxford, Pennsylvania
