  1. “Going on diet recipes” are my favorite! I’m usually better with those at breakfasts, not so good during the lunch time, and absolutely awful during dinners! Good luck with the resolutions!

    • Thank’s very much for your support, I know for myself that is not easy to be on diet, and I’m trying to make my meals a bite more interesting so I won’t break it….hope you enjoy.

  2. I am having some friends round for supper one evening, may do your recipe, you could also use other vegetables that our in season to replace the courgettes. Jills kitchen U.K.
