Loads of Yum!

Three nights ago, I tried a new vegetarian recipe for dinner. I don't know who loves this dish more, my husband or myself! This dish is loads of yum. We had about 4 containers of leftovers and they didn't stand a chance in our fridge. My husband ate two containers after school one night, and he finished the last container yesterday after work. This dish just has it all - texture, taste and it's easy to make!
