This is probably the recipe that I have been making the longest and thus one of my favorites. Back in our 20’s when we were living in our 400 square foot apartment in New York City, I pretty much made one meal . . . this one. I was given a recipe from a wife of one of my husband’s co-workers and with a few tweaks, I turned it into our favorite meal. Because I didn’t cook a lot, I remember a sense of pride in cooking and serving this meal – mostly because Mr. B loved it so much. He hates beans so I’ve never added beans to this recipe, but especially if you are vegetarian, you’ll want to replace the meat with beans. Other than that don’t touch a thing!
Included in this post is a video of how to make it, with the help of Landon, who is around three at the time. I also made a FREE printable recipe card for you that you can download when you click HERE, so make sure you grab that as well.
