Author Notes

My family has been making this healthy green recipe for generations. I learned it from my grandmother. It can be both the perfect "meatless" meal or it can also be enjoyed as the perfectly nutritious side dish.
For a totally meatless meal; it it delicious served over whole wheat pasta.
For those who would like meat; this is also delicious served with some sauteed hot italian sausage. —Donna
