In May, we posted a recipe for some super scrumptious “Caprese Chicken” (See link)

Today’s recipe is for a side dish that goes perfectly with that chicken but it’s a true gem for any Mediterranean meal! If you’re looking for low carb, this isn’t the best BUT the good news is that by adding plenty of veggies to the volume of the dish, you don’t need as many noodles which means less carbs overall!
