Notes

This recipe is what helped me lose my "i'm finally going to quit smoking" weight. It's Weight Watchers/points-friendly and really fills you up! The great thing about this dish is that it tastes great hot or cold so you can make it year 'round. It's also extremely versatile: you can throw in whatever veggies you have lying around or that appeal to you.
