This recipe is somehow #1 on the top 10 list AGAIN for the third year in a row with over 175,000 pageviews in 2019. I don't know how. I don't know why. And if you've read this far, then you deserve to know a secret: this is my personal least favorite recipe on the list. Try the others first, then come back to this one if you need a totally new meal idea. Family friendly, low-carb, and seriously packed with vegetables. It’s super easy to modify and makes terrific leftovers!
