You're very welcome Vamp.

 

Great as a side dish with whatever you desire, or as a meal in itself, and the recipe can be adjusted according to how many people are being served, and whether it will be served as a side dish, or a complete meal it itself.

 

It is delicious either served hot, cold, or at room temperature.......Enjoy itSmiley Happy.

I actually found two lemons in the back of the crisper under the cilantro and basil.

 

I'm making this dish for lunch today!

I have a similar recipe that I got eons ago from 'Cooking Light Magazine'.   It is so very good.  

 

The only differences that come to mind, without looking at my recipe, is that mine also has artichoke hearts in it and IIRC you do most of the cooking in one of those 'cooking bags'.     It's a stunning recipe and I've enjoyed it for years.

I made this over the weekend.  DH said "You haven't made this in a while!" before he devoured it.  I'm lucky I made my small plate first.  It was light and delicious!

 

Chickenb, I think I've made the Cooking Light one in the past.  I go there for most of my recipes and that one is right up my alley!

Thanks Honny & Hubby,

 

I am really glad you and hubby liked my posted Shrimp Orzo with Feta recipe, which we and others also enjoy.

 

Yes Honny the recipe I posted is quite light and delicious, and I agree with what you and your Hubby said, when you both enjoyed it.

 

I also agree that there is absolutely nothing in the ingredients which would make anyone believe this recipe I posted is a heavy tasting recipe......It is not......it is light, delicious, and has many healthy ingredients also listed.

 

My posted recipe is definitely not a heavy recipe at all, and any type of veggies can be added to it, as I also noted above, within the context of my posted recipe.  

 

I thank you and your hubby for your lovely feedback Honny, and will post other recipes for you to all enjoy.

 

Please do try the Daisy Cooks Chiles Rellenos Latino type recipe I posted earlier today. That too is also a keeper Honny!

 

(BTW  I am making that for a late luncheon for company).

 

Take care my friend, and have a lovely weekSmiley Happy.
