“Got this recipe from Everyday by Rachael Ray. I am a beginner cook. My husband tried this and said that it was his favorite! He said that he would give it five stars and would like to have this served more often. Easy to make and most of the ingredients are already on hand. YUM. The recipe is customizable! Use substitutes if you have to. :)”
