  • I added mushrooms to this recipe (cause I love them!) and used a whole pint of grape tomatoes. This recipe is really good. It looks beautiful and delicious when it's finished. I couldn't wait to take a bite. - 5/3/11

  • Absolutely delicious and healthy. I changed the recipe a little using 2 tblsps of olive oil, my grape tomatoes didn't pop so I had to cut them, added grilled chicken and Kraft light Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing. - 4/21/09
