I came up with this recipe about 4 years ago when I was pregnant. It is so easy and quick to make. Plus it freezes really well so making it ahead of time is perfect. I was actually making this recipe to freeze when I was in labor. I really needed to have some food in the freezer before our little guy came (and he decided to come about a week early).
This is a great week night dinner to make up and have ready to go. Especially if you have hungry kiddos on your hands. I hope you enjoy!
