This recipe is one of my all-time favorites. It's easy, quick and delicious. It can be jazzed up or kept plain. When you have company, add Portabella mushrooms, Feta cheese, red, yellow and green peppers. When serving children or picky eaters, do not add any fancy vegetables-just make the basic recipe. You can do a lot with this recipe -- be creative and have fun.
