Especially during the summertime, this makes a nice light meal. When I prepare it for guests, I'll also serve rice and bread—it's quick and easy, but it always wins me many compliments! I'm a homemaker with two small children, and cooking's one of my favorite hobbies.

"Delicious. Just what I wanted. I followed the recipe closely but added sauteed red pepper and jalepeno for a kick."
