Recipe by MelvinsWifey

I needed to get rid of some broccoli one day and whipped this up with some other ingredients already in my cupboard. This is so yummy and can be altered to suit your own tastes! As far as the fresh herbs, I use cilantro, parsley, basil or rosemary but it changes each time! Start with parsley and change it up for different tastes!
