GREAT TASTING & EASY TO MAKE! I used bread crumbs from a winter wheat bread that's standard fare in my kitchen & that, along with the other ingredients, made for a wonderful taste experience ~ What a great way to dress up the veggies! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hit Wonders cooking game]
