Even though it was around 85 yesterday and stinkn’ muggy out, I really wanted a “comfort” dish for dinner…..well, what better than a casserole! So I used Quinoa as my base for this casserole – It really adds lightness to dishes. I tossed together a simple Arugula Salad that just had olive oil and fig balsamic vinegar in it-so amazingly good! Then I paired it with some nice cold Pinot Grigio with Lemon Verbena leaves in it that I plucked from my garden. Fantastic comfort dinner for summer!
Even though I didn’t aim to do so…..this is a really good “figure friendly” dish to make. There’s none of the ingredients that you normally would find in a casserole like canned cream-of-mushroom or chicken, mayo, sour cream, etc…So incorporate this dish in with your weekly meals and suffer no guilt!
