It is such a simple meal and my whole family loves it.  If you need a meal that can be put together and made in less than 30 minutes, you’ll want to bookmark this recipe for sure. We made this again a couple nights ago and I was excited to share this past recipe with you again. I hope you love it and have a wonderful weekend!
