Expert Tips

We like the bright color of the red bell pepper, but you could use green bell pepper instead. If you have fresh chives, go ahead and substitute them for the green onions that are sprinkled on top.

Parmesan cheese adds a nice punch of flavor to this recipe without adding lots of fat and calories.
