I do a variation of this; instead of pasta sauce/marinara/spaghetti sauce, I use balsamic vinegar. I also use red onions and crimini mushrooms. It's really popular with my husband and daughter; my son is still getting used to eating things that are not bread chicken strips. ;)

About This Blog

I find recipes everywhere. Online. In magazines. In cookbooks. On the back of boxes. After a while, it got difficult to remember where I found (or stashed) a particular recipe when I wanted to make it a second time. With the goal of wrangling them all in one coherent location that was easy to find and navigate--along with multiple requests from friends for this recipe or that one--this blog was born.
