Earlier this week I made this dish out of ingredients we have in the pantry. It was fast, delicious, and didn’t require a trip to the grocery store. I love meals that involve no extra shopping.

This can be made not vegan easily by using butter and garnishing with fresh parm. I think this would go quite well with some chicken, but as I’m vegan, I’m never going to know. If any Glibs try it with some chicken, do let me know in the comments how it turns out.
