Based on a recipe from Pam Spaude’s & Jan Owan-McMenamin, R.D.’s cookbook, One Year of Healthy, Hearty & Simple One-Dish Meals. They recommend serving this with cottage cheese (1/4 cup per person), a fresh fruit, or a glass of milk to complete the meal. My DH and I like these for lunch accompanied with fruit.
