It's hot here in sunny California, so I'm always trying to find recipes that take little to no cooking. The less I have to heat my kitchen, the better! We unfortunately don't have air conditioning, so we try to do our best to keep our house cool. This recipe fits the bill and is totally yummy too! I also love recipes which only take a few minutes to make. I love whipping up a good meal, but after a long hot day that last thing that I want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen. The meal takes just minutes. Chop some veggies, toss them in spices and eat up!
The other perk to this meal is it is also very low in cholesterol. Mozzarella cheese is a lower cholesterol cheese, but you could leave it off and it would be just as tasty.
If you would like to try this recipe, go to Champions for Change under their lunch menu. It's listed as a lunch but it was filling enough for dinner, especially on a hot summer day.
