“This recipe, a family staple in the winter, comes from Rachel Ray. It is quick, easy, & very tasty. The original calls for "small potatoes"; I use buttery Yukon Golds for optimum flavor. Note: I just made this again for supper. The potatoes took longer to cook than the recipe said. Next time I will start them cooking first and give them a little longer to soften up before I add the other veggies.”
