MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 9, 2010

This is fantastic. I left out the red peppers because I didn't have any on hand, and added some grilled chicken breasts. I also used skim milk to save on some calories and because I didn't have any shredded parm. cheese I just sprinkled some grated over the top. Yum!
