I actually made this when I was on the Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family Show,” and we had loads of fun making this dish which everyone loved, and then I made everyone do a little happy dance. Haha! Can check out the segment here. Watch!
This dish is one of my family’s favorite comfort food.
It’s easy, delicious, healthy, and hot! hot! & hot!
