This is a delicious and hearty family meal, perfect for sit-down dinners.

I was so excited to make this traditional recipe using my favorite cast iron dutch oven and the end result was over-the-top delish.

You don't need any expensive veggies or ingredients to make this meal and you can even use leftovers you have them. When I have leftover vegetables of any kind, I save them for a meal like this.

If you won't to lighten up the meal even more skip the mashed potato topping and serve with rice or some fresh bread.

If you do decide to go with the traditional mashed potato topping but don't have the time or feel like making them grab a container of pre-made ones from the grocery store.
