MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2012

Oh my goodness, this was absolutely delicious! I ate it for three meals straight, I couldn't get enough of it. This recipe is easy and fun to tweak too - once I added feta and fresh baby spinach, which went well with the original ingredients. Next time I will try adding sliced tomato and fresh basil. As a vegetarian, I thank you so much for contributing this fabulous recipe!
