This is an easy recipe to make and it is very good! My grandchildren helped create this recipe... so I think it is "kid friendly". I like incorporating vegetables into my recipes to help get our daily intake of vegetables into our diets. Adding vegetables also boost the volume of the food and give added flavor and texture.
