This is one of my all time favorite meals even growing up. I totally forgot about it to tell you the truth, so a few years back when my mom said she was making it for dinner I wanted to sprint over to her house so I could taste the amazing flavor of this dish. So I asked for the recipe and I was in heaven, just an amazing taste of childhood.
