Gluten-free, vegetarian, low cal, vegan…this dish is none of those things. Whoops! But I swear to you it’s ridiculously delicious. The casserole is hearty (as you can see), so a small piece will satisfy your hunger. Whip this up for your friends and family over the weekend and maybe serve it with a fruit platter or something. It’s all about balance, right? :-)
