I loved that this was an easy meal to throw together early and have in the oven in time to run out the door... Such is our life right now! :) Anything that can be prepped ahead of time is high on my list of meals and one that is super tasty makes it even better! My only problem with this recipe was that one cup was not quite enough for me - I wanted more it was so good!
