Often on weeknights I like to eat something light and healthy. I try and save my
calories for the weekend. When I tasted this I knew it was going to be a hit and will
go on my menu rotation. Serve this with whole grain pitas and you have yourself a
wonderful meal. Any night that I do not have to turn the oven on is a great night!
