Personal Notes:
This is one of those comfort meals. I love to make it when I come home from work because it is easy and fast to prepare. My Grandmothers made it and so did my Mom. When Mom lived with me, we would eat this every week. Ken likes it, too. I loved the way Aunt Mary prepared it. I just can't seem to make it the same way, but I no matter how you fix it, it's a hearty meal.

A healthful, hearty dish on a cold winter night!
