WELL, THIS IS THE FAMOUS "1ST DINNER" RECIPE. WHEN I WAS SINGLE, I SERVED THIS TO THE GUYS THAT I HAD OVER FOR DINNER FOR THE FIRST TIME. THEY WERE ALWAYS IMPRESSED AND ALWAYS ASKED ME TO MAKE IT AGAIN. TRY IT, IT WORKS.

I SERVE IT WITH BISCUITS OR BREAD.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

I can see why this worked on all of Bonnie's suitors! This recipe was a huge hit in the Test Kitchen... resulting in a completely empty casserole dish by the end of our "sampling". We chose to use basil, rosemary and thyme as our herbs of choice, and it was a pure delight.
