I recently started changing my lifestyle, and I spend a lot of time scouring my favorite cookbooks and cooking magazines for nutritious, healthy and filling recipes. This one I tried a couple of weeks ago, and I really loved it. Surprisingly, my kids did too! It's simple and quick, and you won't believe it's light! Enjoy!

Yum!! I made this for my family and everyone - of all ages - loved it! Fresh and light, it would be great served as a side OR as an easy main dish. Add grilled chicken or shrimp for extra zing! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
