This recipe is by Andrea Fouch.

I enjoyed this recipe very much and that is why I am blogging it to you, but I would add
more flavor by adding a sliced onion(add at initial stage of saute) and also add an add'l cup of spinach(b/c I love spinach and it wilts during cooking) I just thought to add extra protein maybe a can of black beans, rinsed. I used this as a main dish, but could be used as a side dish too.

Let me know if you try and what you think! Enjoy~
