My mouth is watering just writing this…this recipe is by far one of my favorite new finds over the past year!  It has joined the regular rotation of dinner items for my husband and I, not only for its taste, but for how easy and cheap it is too!

I found this recipe last year on Pinterest, thinking pin-now, try-later, and boy I’m glad I did!

So here it is!

I hope you all have a chance to try this one!  It couldn’t be any easier…and cheap!  (TIPS: The can of breadcrumbs last more than one meal and you can even freeze the tomato pasta sauce, so the ingredients can go a long way!)

Hope you enjoy it!
