This recipe comes from my oldest sister..Pat made this a few years ago for our annual "Sisters' Retreat". Very yummy!! As I personally have not made it, I do not know the prep time...Pat already had the veggies all prepped when we arrived at our rented cabin for our get-together. Hope you will try it and enjoy it as much as we all did!
This was served to us with homemade sweet potato biscuits and warm spiced cider, in an outdoor, Fall decorated/candlelight deck setting.. Was very lovely and VERY delish!!
