My daughter brought me this recipe from her Home Economics class two years ago and I finally got around to making it...I wasn't sure about it, when I read the ingredients...had no spices at all, so I added my touch to it, also added more soup and pasta than the recipe called for...more cheese too...' Well,I must admit the recipe had me fooled, it was awesome. One of those recipe that will be even better the next day. I hope you try it sometime... Enjoy!
