You are faced with hungry mouths to feed, but the fridge is fairly bare. This recipe is from the group of recipes referred to as “Impossible Pies”. As all you need to do is throw a bunch of ingredients together and it forms a glorious, munchable mass, not more than 45 minutes later. I thank my friend K. for leading me to this beauty, it has been become one of my go-to dishes in times of need.
