This is a great dish that can be easily customized for different eating-styles. For my man, I made the meal pretty much by the recipe (I had kale and fresh tomatoes and prefer whole-wheat/potato gnocchi, so I used those) and added a couple ounces of Italian sausage (we had it left over from another meal). For me, I nixed the cheese (I'm allergic to milk) and threw in some artichoke hearts (he hates 'em, I love 'em!). De-freakin'-licious! A smattering of roughly chopped fresh herbs tossed over it at the end (parsley, thyme and chervil) made it really special. Yum!
