This is a delicious recipe that combines a healthy and tasty part in an amazing combination. This recipe I remember from my youth. My mother was preparing it for this main dish with a creamy texture and so tasty tomato sauce over it. A year ago I’ve rediscovered this recipe in a new light, it’s very suitable for my new direction. I modified to be suitable for the Zone diet, I’ve made proportions based on rules of this food regime. All these changes help me to improve this recipe based on my experience.
