This is from Rachel Ray. This makes a great side dish to piccata and other breaded meat recipes. Also, throwing in some grilled chicken makes this a wonderful light meal!

I made this to go with Lemon Peppered Grilled Shrimp and it was a great side. It's easy to throw together during the week, and I see myself using this often as a side for my meals. Yum!
