Make this dish and your house will smell awesome as it's cooking. This is a dish my mom would always make. Sometimes she would add garbanzo beans too. I left them out this time. I also added a few other ingredients that she didn't to enhance the flavors. Mom usually served with noodles. I served with creamy mashed potatoes. Delicious!
