This recipe comes from a blog… but not a cooking blog. But this recipe is AWESOME! I follow Katie by instagram and she posted an empty casserole dish raving about this recipe. Then she put the recipe on her blog and I knew I had to make it. And it did NOT disappoint!!
Maddy ate almost as much as me, and since she is picky as a bird that was an achievement. There was just a tiny tiny bit left. And her and I fought over the leftovers. I call that success. It also went together really quickly which you know is a must in my kitchen now a days. Try this dish SOON!
