    A family favorite. A quick and easy dish when you are pressed for time. We are not olive fans so those were omitted. Great flavors.

    These were really good, although I prefer a more liquidy meat mixture, the meat mixture was really thick.

    I've been making this recipe for years and it is always loved. The girls at work request I make it for them on a regular basis. It is a favorite with men, women, children, young and old! Very simple to make. I just keep it warm in a crock pot.
