This is so good. This was our dinner even though we are not vegetarians. it's so fresh and yummy. I didn't have all the ingredients so I used parsley instead cilantro, green freshly picked pepper instead of roasted red, I cut some onion greens from the garden instead of using scallions, and I omitted the cheese since I'm pregnant. After the baby is born I'm totally making this with all the ingredients listed. I can't wait to make this again. Thanks
