Fall is in full swing which means we get to cook those wonderful oven and crock pot baked dishes or hot dishes or casseroles or whatever you want to call them. I whipped this up in just a few minutes tonight and it was so dang good I ate almost the whole thing before the family came home. Actually, they never came home. Yippeee! More for me! P.S. This dish is gluten free for all ye who live that new dietary direction and you won't even notice!
Serves 4 with a little under 500 calories per serving.

I find it quite amusing when a company titles their product: Epicurean. I think few of them really know what it means. The free online dictionary defines it as: Devoted to the pursuit of sensual pleasure, especially to the enjoyment of good food and comfort.
Yet, Epicurus was more complicated and interesting than that. He shunned superstition and divine intervention for a philosophy that claimed pleasure was the only good. Some mistake his philosophy to be about Hedonism. But really he was about simple pleasure through modest living and knowledge. Pleasure was the good, knowledge was the key.
I think this is the perfect recipe to represent an Epicurean lifestyle. A simple recipe that tastes good with a little knowledge of what and how ingredients go together. Nothing divine here.
