“This recipe is an inexpensive but filling side dish that was served at Lawry's California Center before closing its doors. It's from "Dear S.O.S. Thirty Years of Recipe Requests to the Los Angeles Times". It isn't low cal by any means, but every dieter needs a day off once in a while--and this is a splurge that is worth every bite! Heck, I'll run an extra mile for this!”
