Considering a posted comment about dieting I will add: “Dieting: triumph of mind over platter.”

I first had this dish at the Miner’s and it was quite good. I would have used more peppers. Another hint being that fresh Parmesan gives a much better flavor to the dish. If there are leftovers it can even be frozen. I like dishes like dat!
