    We added parmesan cheese at the end. It added a nice flavor to it.

    I love this. I made only about 1/3 of it except I still used a whole tomato. Yummy, easy, and healthy. Can't beat that combination. It would be great with lemon or lime juice or southwest or steak seasoning also for variety. Would be great with grilled steaks, chicken, or chops as well. Will make over and over.
