Ditto on the previous--been making this since it came out in the magazine. It is a definite family favorite. We like smoky provolone in it best and the fresh basil is worth the extra trouble. I would triple it if it fit in the skillet! Leftovers are good but there are rarely any left. We use a small amount of sweet onion chopped and cooked with the vegetables in place of the green onion (just personal preference). This is our favorite vegetarian recipe and we aren't vegetarians.
