Thanks to Mezzetta for sponsoring today’s discussion. All opinions, recipe and photos are my own.


We have a recipe tradition at my mom’s house. Every year for at least the last 15 years, she makes this dish at Christmas time.

So when it comes to easy, quick, healthy meals I can throw together on a weeknight or before we run to an event on the weekends – salads is our choice.
