Seldom do I add a recipe to my list if I don't absolutely LOVE it, or some such redeeming quality, but I so rarely find a vegetarian recipe that I want to try. . . So, when this one turned out ok, I decided to keep it. And when I shared it with my vegetarian friend, modifying it, I found it to be entering the realm of delish. I found this recipe on the Page-a-Day calendar (Recipes / 2013). I added the cheese and the salsa (my own recipe), but if anyone comes across another ingredient that makes it better, let me know!
