I don’t know a single woman who’s ever said, “Gee, I just have so many quick and easy recipes that I don’t know what to do with them all.” I bet you don’t either.
Everyone these days is busy. Whether you’re just getting in from work, have just a short time period before you have to dash off to a child’s activity (or your own), or just don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, we all need to be able to get dinner on the table quickly sometimes.
I love this recipe because it’s not only quick and simple, but it’s also hearty. And did I mention that clean up is a breeze? With only one pot and one skillet to wash, you’ll be out of the kitchen in no time. Now that’s my kind of recipe!
