Ok, so I have this thing where I see recipes in magazines and think to myself, Hey I’ll make that someday. I rip out the recipe and stuff it in a manilla folder. In my quest to find a nice meatless meal to feed my family, I rummaged through my precious manilla folder and found this yummy recipe. It was so good and tasty that I will be making it again and again!
