I actually made this tasty supper for my family a few years back while desperately seeking something my family would enjoy and my picky brother would actually eat. It is actually very similar to a creation of my own, only with herbs to elevate the delicious flavors. It was so delicious, so simple and so awesome that I posted it straight away to my Facebook page that very night. I couldn’t wait to share this scrumptious find with my friends and family.
What makes this meal so great? It’s quick – that’s always a big plus in my book. It’s sad to admit that there are time when I dread the very idea of spending time in the kitchen. Nothing gives me more pleasure than to cook, but there are times when I haven’t the energy or desire. I’m just too tired at the end of the day to whip up an awesome meal for my famished menfolk. And the truth be told, they like simple. Hamburgers and pizza would suit them just fine. I’m the one who loves complex, multi-layered extravaganza. Just not every night, thank you. So from a practical standpoint quick is good – very, very good. Unfortunately, sometimes we trade flavor for convenience. Who wants to do that? Let me tell you, this is recipe packed with flavor. Just be sure to use FRESH herbs. It makes all the difference in the world.
Another plus is that everything is cooked in one skillet. Less clean up – although I must confess, that’s not my job in the kitchen. We have a deal – those that cook DO NOT clean. So I cook, and my guys clean. Still, I like their company, so the less mess, the more time for family stuff.
Served with a simple salad or raw vegetables and it makes for one simple yet delicious weekday supper. I hope your family enjoys this wonderful recipe as much as we did. If so, we all need to say thank you Mary Younkin over at Bare Feet in the Kitchen Both the recipe and the photo are her creations.
