Ever get home from work and you’re hungry, tired, and so confused as to what to cook? This is the meal for you! This is so quick, and easy. It is definitely my go to meal. Whenever I ask my boyfriend what I should cook, he always suggests this. And it is actually kinda healthy, which is great! This meal would feed 4 girls easily. But, if you are super hungry or you have boys to feed, it is best to serve the toss with a side dish. Last time I made this, I served it with home made kumara chips. Thanks to my girl Annabel Langbein for the recipe.
