I was in the mood for a quick and easy dinner that would reheat easily! This fit the bill for my family of three. It was a dinner one night, then meals the next couple of days as we each had a different weekend schedule. A loaf of garlic bread and a big bowl of salad in the fridge were perfect accompaniments!
