We had a womens group function at church with an Italian pot luck theme. I left it to late to start the dish I had planed to take . Thinking what can I make that's quick. Chilli sounded good ,but Italians don't make chilli. Why not I thought. This is what I came up with. Several of the girls asked for the recipe,so I thought I would share. It's even better the next day.
