This is a great, easy dish to prepare for a weeknight dinner, and if you keep most of the ingredients in the house, you don't need a special shopping trip to get what you need. We finished the pan and there was only 2 of us. Some warm bread and glasses of wine pare perfectly with this dish. And clean-up is simple and easy.
