Several months ago I felt that I needed to be eating more of a Mediterranean Diet. Well, when I had my yearly checkup I found out that I was heading towards diabetes. Thank you 2020. My doctor told me that the Mediterranean Diet would be perfect for me. Four months later, my blood work came back all within the normal ranges!!!

This recipe is a great one to add to your repertoire. I found it in a Better Homes & Gardens magazine full of Mediterranean Diet recipes. You’re gonna love it!
