This was pretty good. I added some red onion and little mozzarella balls left over from another recipe and it was tasty. I also added some zest of the lemon. My non vegetarian sister even liked it :)

I enjoyed this more than I expected. I added just a bit of garlic and substituted cilantro for the basil. It was delicious and suprisingly filling!
