    When I set out to create this dish, I wanted to make it super simple and still keep all of the delicious flavors. I also like dishes that don’t require me to work the entire time in the kitchen. You can prepare and have this dish finished in just an hour. Perfect for an after school meal, and easy for when you get home from work.
