Another favorite Sandra Lee 20 minute recipe. This recipe was always a request of Hannah's. Serve with egg noodles. Great with green beans as a side.

I always use diced fire-roasted tomatoes instead of recipe ingredient recommendation. And I usually use 2 cans because everyone wants more tomatoes.
