The title is not what you may think. I didn't have enough space to add all of the veggies in the title, so I shortened it & used the initials,for Peppers,Mushrooms & Spinach.This all in one meal isn't hard but a bit time consuming but well worth your efforts. It is a cross between Chicken Parmesan & something in between. I created it out of my desire to add green veggies with the pasta, in one way or another. The results were a healthier version of chicken by baking instead of frying, & then adding a lot of sauteed veggies with two types of cheeses. My husband devoured every bite.Hope you like
