Directions@ Yammie’s Noshery <DIRECTIONS



I made this for dinner this evening and it was everything I hoped it would be just really delicious and full of flavor. You can’t go wrong with this recipe. I stuck to the recipe with the exception of doing just a few things different and adding;

1 tsp Honey Mustard
1tsp Dijon Mustard
1/4 cup Virginia extra sharp cheddar cheese
I simmered the vegetable for about 15 to 20 minutes in the chicken broth and seasonings before adding all of the other ingredients.
