    We make this all the time! One of our favorite side dishes. We use leftovers with leftover roasted veggies in a "bowl" of sorts. SO delicious!

    This dish suprised me with its simple elegance. It is quick and easy to put together, and makes a statement on the table. Its subtle flavours are flexible enough to pair with roasts, chicken, pork chops, and even grilled meats. A definite favourite in our family!
