This has to be one of my favorite recipes to do on a Sunday night (before the start of the working week!). Why you may ask? Well it just so happens this recipe makes the perfect amount for the family to have a nice hearty and healthy dinner AND have enough for leftover lunches the following day! Perfect right?

It is an easy and simple meal that actually gets my girls eating vegetables and all the good stuff (I mean when in the world would they ever eat ricotta cheese voluntarily!)

Enough about how good this recipe is – I’ll let you try it and be the judge for yourself!
