    Marz's Note:

    This recipe was one of the top recipes published in 2008 by the Chicago Tribune newspaper in the Good Eating section. It was adapted from "The Woman's Day Cookbook for Healthy Living." The lemon zest provides a surprising zing.

      Great even without the lemon. My son and his roomate gobbled this up after my wife saying they wouldn"t even try it.
