A great, healthy meal...

I made this for dinner for us on Monday and I thought it was awesome! I loved it. I doubled the recipe because I wanted to use up all the sugar snap peas I had bought. The only thing I might do next time is add a little less broth or made corn starch because it didn't thicken up as much as I would have liked. I found the recipe on

I would like to request a "yummy" or "mmm..." added to the "reaction" selection, please. ;) Mmmm! I want to try this recipe. :) And the latest lazagna one too. I've tried to make homemade lazagna once...Oh, it was bad. Terrible even. It was back in my just-got-married stage of cooking though, so that probably had something to do with it...
