Stolen from the Food Lovers Diet Book..this recipe is so simple and so wonderfully delicious. I love it as a meal in itself with a salad but of course it is a fabulous side dish too.

I made this twice this week, because it's so easy to make and it's quite delicious. I went with other reviewers and added minced garlic (personal preference--I'm sure the recipe would be excellent as written, too). My only comment would be that this simply was not substantial enough to be a main dish for my family. I don't know if we are big eaters or what, but for us it was a side dish. I served it with baked fish the first time and broiled chicken the second time, and it was a great side dish for both meals. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Noo.
