Expert Tips

Whole wheat flour is a great way to help fill your day with fiber. Fiber works to maintain your digestive system by keeping things moving.

No fresh tomatoes? Two cans (14.5 oz each) Muir Glen® diced tomatoes, drained, make a great substitute. Keep a stash of canned tomatoes so you can make this quick dinner anytime!

Many different olive oils are available. Extra-virgin, from the first pressing of the olives, has a fruity flavor that doesn't take well to heat. Go ahead and use the less-expensive pure olive oil when heating the oil.
