Note: We (myself and five siblings) all loved this dish when we were kids.

It was only when I grew up and made it myself that I realized what a sophisticated yet easy dish it was. My mom always doubled the recipe to feed our large gang and I think it freezes good as well. No idea where the recipe originated, though it more than likely was taken from a 60's copy of Women's Day magazine.
