Well, if all else fails – follow a recipe on the outside of your Parmesan Cheese container.
This recipe was so simple. And, since I had all the ingredients on-hand, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try it. And, since you pre-make it, it would be perfect to make on a Sunday and eat later in the week.
It fed us for three days…. I ate it for lunch and dinner. It was yummy and filling and made lots of food.
