I can't for the life of me, think of where I got this recipe. It has been awhile, since I have made it, I think I might fix it this weekend. I haven't done as much cooking lately, since dealing with health issues. My husband has his own specialties, when he is cooking. Anything with tomatoes is good, in my mind.
