This recipe is a family favorite that I have been making for many years. Each time I make it, I try a different ingredient variation. The version posted here is one I made recently for dinner that included teenagers - frequently, a hard group to please. This recipe is "Friend and Family ...& Teenager" approved. Enjoy!
