This is one of my go to dinners when I need something quick to feed a lot of people. The recipe can be reduced easily for smaller families.
When I was a kid I watched my best friends mother Ann Bailey cook this for her family and when I had a family of my own I made up this recipe trying to copy what I remember her doing.
I hope I did ok.
