I found this recipe out of a murder mystery book I once read and tried it on my family and they loved it. I got lots of compliments on the flavor of this dish. It is a little time consumming but it is worth it. You could even add cooked chopped chicken to this to make it a whole meal instead of a side dish.

serves 4-6 people
prep time 20 Min
cook time 25 Min
