Found this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens, it's by Johnsonville and is wonderful. I have made it 3 times now and each time I think that I will change it up but never do. It is perfect the way it is. My family just eats it up. Before serving I put some in a plastic bowl so that I have some for lunch the next day or I would be out of luck! ha-ha
