This dish is becoming a staple in my house. It’s a really fast meal to put together, it makes enough for lunches the next day, and it’s healthy.
Some of the ingredients I used for this recipe were from my local CSA share. If you are unfamiliar with CSA, CSA stands for “Community Supported Agriculture”. Basically, you receive a bag of seasonal produce that comes directly from local farmers. I cannot say enough about the freshness and flavor of the fruits and vegetables I’ve received. I feel as though I found a gold mine when I discovered Bear’s Honeypot (specialty food and cheese shop that provides customers with CSA shares).
