    YUM-O! I know Scott would LOVE this meal! And, I already love it because of the "30 minute" portion. :)

  2. It really is probably even less than 30 minutes! I was really surprised at how much I liked this. Not much to it, but I really liked the flavors. You can use whatever veggies you like the best. I'm sure onions and peppers would be good too, I am just not a fan of either really.

  3. ok YUMMMMMMMMMMMM this is so going to made in our household this week!!! Thank You for sharing!!!! More please heheh

  4. I just made it again tonight and added a can of drained diced tomatoes too.
