I love this recipe and Bry loves it too, it's become a new family fav this year! YUM-O Enjoy!
PS. this recipe first called for a mushroom sauce to put on top... Bry told me ten years ago when we first stared dating that he was allergic to mushrooms... since we've been married i have found that it was a lie (he just hates them and knew i would want him o try them if he hadn't told me he was allergic) SOOOO... i make it withOUT the mushrooms :) and it's JUST as good.
