    that one comes back on our menu at least once a month. So much taste with so little spices and so healthy.The most popular one that we exchange at work.

    I like to add green and red peppers to give it more veggies and add more garlic since my husband and I love garlic. I also like to top it with feta cheese instead of Parmesan.
