To save her newly married son from starvation, my mother-in-law, Karen, showed up one day and tactfully suggested that she and I cook a few things together. It's a good thing she did, too. This was the first dish we tried. Her version was a huge hit, but took triple the time that this one did. Now that I've adapted her recipe with my shortcuts, I don't have to cringe every time my husband requests the dish. I'm grateful to her for this, and her many kindnesses over the years.
