  2. I got this recipe for the Food Network, and at first I thought it was a lot of work, but once you get everything out, it comes together pretty fast. I cook it on top of the stove, and it was great. I took some to my neighbor, and she wants the recipe. It makes enough for 12 to 16 servings. Hope you like it.
