I'm not sure where I got this recipe from but my hubby and I love it each time I make it. Most of the ingredients should be on your shelves, and the best part is it's easy and quick to make. Add a Caesar's or nice green salad, some good Italian bread, and you have a wonderful feast for four. Enjoy!
