This is a great, comfort dish. My sister gave me the recipe and I tweaked it to fit my family's taste. My friends also request this when we have pot-luck dinners. Garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and serve with a salad and hot garlic bread. You'll be a hit with everyone.

My family loves meals that have a kick. This was no exception - the kids loved it. My husband added a little more jalapeno on his, but it had just the right amount of spice for me. (Oh, and it's SO cheesy!) The Test Kitchen
