This is a great starter recipe for anyone who thinks they can't cook, or even if you know you can cook. My eight year old helped prepare it with me, basically doing it all on her own. We added frozen peas for some color and nutrition of course.

This is quick, easy comfort food. I'm sure it would be kid friendly too. My boyfriend went nuts over it.
