Notes

" A friend of mine sent this recipe to me when I got my first apartment, because she knows how much I hate cooking! It's really easy -- even I can make it -- and tastes great. I'm not sure where she found the recipe, but it included the note "Good source of protein, vitamin A, B group vitamins, calcium." I'm guessing at the 3-4 serving yield; I'm the only one I make it for and it lasts me a couple of meals. "
