“This is an easy budget stretching favorite from our early marriage. It freezes well for Once a Month Cooking, and makes a great big batch. My husband prefers it to never reach the freezer, though--just eat it for lunch until it's all gone. We make it with our "Parsley Pesto" which is more special. To make it vegan/vegetarian, omit the chicken broth.”
