About this Recipe:

It only takes about 20-30 minutes to make this recipe, less if you have everthing prepared ahead of time which is wise. It'll make 4-6 resonable sized servings, last time I made this, as shown in the picture, I doubled all the ingredients and was able to serve 7 with everyone going back for seconds and still having a little left over for the next day. It also preserves well and tastes just as good second time around :D Hope you enjoy.
