"My family requests this at least twice a month. My 10 year old daughter is always like "YES!" when I tell her I am making it for dinner. :) Absolutely LOVE this recipe!"
"I used to make this a long time ago and lost the recipe was thrilled to see it. Thank you for sharing."
"Boy, this is an old recipe -- from Better Homes and Gardens in the 1950s. I've served it since then. It's a good way to get veggies down reluctant kids."
