This is a recipe that is stashed in my recipe binder I have had for many years. I have not made it in a while but it has always been popular. The last time I made it for a family function people were wrestling for the serving spoon! To make it a main dish, simply add in 1 1/2 cups of diced, cooked chicken or ham. Enjoy!
