Jenny's notes for this recipe:
This is such a colorful and tasty recipe. Whenever I make this, folks always ask for the recipe. Sooo good. This picture was taken before I added shredded cheddar cheese on the top and baked. I just wanted you to be able to see the ingredients.

You won't have any leftovers. I looked for your recipes and it won't come up with any.

An ex-boyfriend's Mom used to make this, and I've been looking for the recipe ever since...this is definitely it, but she didn't put olives, peas, or water chestnuts in her version. I can't wait to make it; it'll be the first time I've had it in years!!! Thanks! :)
