It serves a family of four. I hope that all enjoy! Also I suggest that you serve a large tossed Organic Salad first with Organic Raw Vegetables with one of my dip recipes or Italian Dressing that you can make with a hearty sprinkle of Italian Seasoning and 4 tablespoons of Omega Mayonnaise. Also serve Sweet Green Peas Steamed and a pat of low fat butter or Green Giant Frozen Sweet Green Peas in butter sauce is a delicious brand.
