    Thanks for sharing PWs recipe! Yeah, her food isn't for dieters, but sometimes we still make something like this for our loved ones and sometimes we splurge and have something that's not a diet-food.
    Ree has some terrific recipes. Thanks for saving me the work of entering this one into SP.

    My husband and I both really liked it and he doesn't like cottage cheese. - 10/7/08

    This might have been o.k. for Pioneer women who had to walk along side a covered wagon but I think it has "weigh" too much fat and calories to be healthy. - 9/26/08

    I used mild Italian sausage instead of hot and no salt added tomatoes & sauce which cut down on the sodium. We enjoyed. - 6/2/21
