I am so excited about this recipe. Since I have started my clean eating experiment I have been faced with veggie heavy recipes. When I came across this recipe I was pumped! This seemed like something I would make anyway regardless of how clean it was. I froze mine since there are so many fun meals that I will be able to use these in. They were very easy to make and freeze and were delicious to boot. I am excited to see what I can use these for in the future.
