  1. Such a simple dish and a delicious meal. We would put out some grated cheese on the table when serving it.

  2. I am loving your Lent recipes! It seems like it’s been going by fast this year – I must not have given enough up 🙂

      Thank you.

      I agree, Lent is FLYING by! But then, as I get older, time in general seems to be going by much faster. 🙂

  3. Another delicious sounding recipe. You could use black beans and Mexican type seasoning and have a totally different take with almost the same ingredients. This would really appeal to my husband.

  4. Sounds yummy!
