This recipe has been a stapel in my family for the past 32 years. I've served it routinely for dinner parties. It's been such a success that it now has become a stapel in my friends homes in Florida and Arizona for the past 30 years! To make this vegetarian just leave out the ground beef and it taste just as good, I've made this both ways.
