  1. Made this today for lunch! I really like the recipe! I added fresh spinach to it and found that it was a nice addition….also next time I think I will reduce to 1 clove of garlic- found 2 cloves to be a bit overpowering. But I will definitely be making this again and again. Thank you for the recipe!!
