I made this for my husband's birthday dinner last year after reading that specific Woman's Day. He LOVED it! So did the friend I had over that night. I am making it again this year for his birthday, except with a lot more people - thankfully it's an easy dish to make a lot of, freeing up the stove when you let it sit so you can cook another batch.
