Tender-crisp Boston lettuce makes the perfect low-calorie stand-in for traditional wraps in this healthy, gluten-free recipe. If you can't find Boston lettuce, other types of greens, such as kale, cabbage or iceberg lettuce, will work too.

My picky husband loved this. The only things I changed were I threw the red pepper in the skillet to cooked it some-he doesn't like raw red pepper. Also I used twice as much basil and right before serving I threw it in the skillet and tossed it all around. I used frozen green peas instead of snowpeas.
