  1. My 10yo chose this as his recipe to make this week. It was easy for him to make almost all on his own (he’s nervous about using a skillet so I sauteed the garlic) and it was delicious. This one will be added into our rotation of recipes.

    • I love that your son gets to cook a meal each week and am thrilled that it was easy for him! Thanks for the feedback.
