This dish is usually very rich with cream, cheese and salty don't get me wrong.....I love it, but it does NOT love me! So here is my healthier version. Okay, it is different, but I still think of it as Straw and Hay! BTW, I suggest you try Oven-Dried Tomatoes by Mirj. I also recommend my Just a Mere Tomato Sauce!
