I saw this recipe today on one of the food blogs I keep tabs on through Google Reader. It looked quick and easy and since I was looking for lunch ideas, I decided to make it. I reduced the recipe by 4 since I was the only one eating it. This turned out to be a great lunch and I’ll definitely make it again sometime! In fact, I imagine it’d be good to make in advance and bring to work for lunch during the week.
