wish people would comment here but they make you jump through so many hoops I guess most won't. 1st..this is not a good recipe, I think its from the campbell's site, just reposted. You need oil in the you use to cook it in...the sauce is just basic sauce, you need to add to it or it will be very bland. and third you can tell its a campbells recipe, it offers not sides...Campbell doesn't make side bad it had the beginning of something good...
