“This is my sister Debra's recipe and my kids always love it when she cooks it for them. It is simple, easy, basic...and very good! You can add a vegetable to the creamy broth if you would like (frozen peas or broccoli), but we like it just the way it is. *I always double this recipe because they always come back for 2nd helpings.”
