I get many requests for really fast recipes from friends who, like me, are moving at the speed of light. When I create a recipe that only takes 15 minutes, is healthy, delicious and child-friendly, I feel like I have hit the jackpot. This recipe is not only all of those things, but it’s also under 10 dollars for the entire dish. It doesn’t get much better than that. See this recipe on Nashville’s News Channel 5 on “Talk of the Town” Thursday 11 a.m. where I will be preparing budget-friendly skillet meals.
