This is another pretty good diabetic recipe. It's got allot of flavor, and it makes your house smell really good too! :) The Diabetic Exchange on this one is: 2 1/2 carbohydrate (bread/starch), 1/2 fat

We have lots of tomatoes and basil so this recipe was perfect for our lunch along with some fruit and fresh bread. I did sprinkle liberally with black pepper. Thank you MizE L for sharing.
