This dish makes a lot, so I recommend that you freeze half and save for another meal in the next couple of months. If it lasts that long- your family is going to want to eat it again soon. My kids love this meal! I received this recipe from a friend that has 6 kids so she had to be super efficient with her time to get dinner on her table. You will use this meal as kind of like a gravy over the rice. You can also use it over potatoes or egg noodles. Tonight when you cook the rice, don't forget to cook enough rice for Wednesday night's cabbage rolls. In the cabbage roll recipe you will need 1 cup cooked rice inside the rolls and then additional rice as the side. Enjoy!
