A dear friend of mine made this for my family after I had had a serious surgery and it has become a family favorite ever since. Easy and impressive meal.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This dish is surprisingly easy to prepare and very tasty.  I would happily serve it to guests along with a tossed salad. What a meal!
