This was given to me by a co-worker several years ago and I take it often to pot lucks. Usually always bring home an empty dish. I especially like to put it in the oven for just a few min. with shreeded mozarella cheese on top. We always serve it with garlic bread when I make it at home. My grandchildren love this dish and ask for it often.
