Wild about Whole Wheat
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.
Substitution
No fresh tomatoes? Two cans (14.5 oz each) Muir GlenĀ® diced tomatoes, drained, make a great substitute. Keep a stash of canned tomatoes so you can make this quick dinner anytime!
Did You Know?
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.
