This is a very easy recipe that looks like it was prepared by a master chef.....another one of my company dishes....I served it to friends a while ago and her husband loved it so much he ran out to M&M's to get a frozen prepared version and was very disappointed!!!
Been making this for a long time....its a classic!!
Hope you all like it!!
