This was soooo good! I cut the recipe in half & used fresh broccoli (believe me, it tasted much better than I think frozen would have!). I used a little less than what was called for, probably around 3 oz. I also used red fat cheese & left out the tomato. I didn't use the salt, used fat free mayo & forgot the black pepper-but no matter, it was still delicious! I also used whole wheat pitas & left out the bacon since it really isn't necessary & only adds calories. Tasty for lunch & leftovers will certainly taste just as good. Thanks so much for sharing, shapeweaver!
