    This is a long time favorite in my house! I found this recipe in the newspaper years ago, and still make it from my now faded and wilted copy!

      It seems like a lot, but it was easy to put together and tasted wonderful! I used carrots, mushrooms, cauliflower, and red bell peppers for the veggies. Loved the cilantro pesto and the tartness of the pico de gallo on top! Great dish! Thanks!
