This is such an easy and inexpensive dish that will "stick to your ribs"! This is the main recipe but it can be altered easily using other ingredients that you have on hand. Even the pickiest of eaters love it. Enjoy! (This is my first recipe ever posted. Please let me know if anything needs to be clarified.)
