My sister gave me this recipe a long time ago. We all just love it. It's a quick easy meal to put together. Hope you like it too!

This is a versatile recipe. Feel free to add some mushrooms, some spinach, use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder, so easy to change it up. I've done it all over the years!
