    This was soooo good that I could not believe that it was a nutritionally “safe” dish so I plugged the recipe into Sparkpeople as you suggested. OMG, not only did it taste good, it was actually good for me. I had a small salad with it and I feel so proud of myself. My daughter also likes it. The real test will be my son and husband. But I know they will love it.
