  1. This looks really yummy. You could easily add some diced chicken for extra protein and have an all in one meal. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This looks good. We have decided to go meatless one meal per week, and this might be our first meatless Monday!

  3. This sounds so good! I noticed that the recipe calls for parm. cheese, but you have a Mexican blend in the photo. Can you just use whatever cheese you have on hand? Thanks!
