This recipe came about in the way that many great recipes do, completely by accident. We’d invited the whole family over for dinner and I sent Tal to the market to do the shopping. Now, the first thing you should know is that I normally never send Tal to the market on his own. He gets so excited about everything he sees, and inevitably ends up buying twice the amount of food. So, after we were done with the family dinner, I spent the next couple of days figuring out ways to use up the extra cheese, bread, and produce.
I don’t know if I should tell him this, but I’m grateful he bought more than we needed. If he hadn’t, I wouldn’t have come up with this recipe. It’s so simple, and yet, so delicious.
