My Grandmother used to make this when I was growing up. It was in her regular rotation and can easily make a very satisfying weeknight dinner. It is absolutely delicious as is, but can be modified with additional seasonings to your liking. I love these older recipes that pay homage to a great youth. Enjoy!
