A warm and yummy dinner in less than 15 minutes? No you are not dreaming. This is one of my very favorite recipes and is something that I serve often (ahem weekly) during the cold Winter months. I love it because it is so easy but it is also delicious, inexpensive, hearty, and amazingly healthy as well. 15 minutes from beginning prep to table? Yeah, you can thank me anytime!
