Contributed by: News Canada

(NC) - Here is a great recipe to try with your cooking club. It's a one-pot meal that covers all four food groups, and the kids will love the creamy Mozzarella taste. It yields 12 servings so everyone can take some home. Keep it covered in the fridge for up to 2 days or freeze serving size containers for up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and reheat in microwave or gently on stove top.
