This was a childhood favorite that carried on to the next generation. My children loved it also and my daughter now makes it. It is an economical and easy meal, which was important as there were seven of us. Use the basic recipe or use your favorite sausage (I use breakfast or pork)or vegetables (I like bell peppers) to make it your own favorite meal! I sometimes add italian spice to change it up.
