“I came up with this one day when I was too sick to go to the store, so I just threw together what I had in the house. It turned out so well that I have made it again on other occasions. To make it even more nutritious, you could probably add canned vegetables as well. This is a good basic recipe that is very forgiving of experimentation.”
