Cheesy Veggies and Beans

By: Leslie
Spinach, Tomatoes and Beans ... all good!

Laura and I both are over-loaded with work right now. Naturally, the best solution was to spend the weekend on a last-minute sister trip to NYC. We had a blast (and even got to “tour” Times Square as we dragged our luggage through it from the bus stop to our hotel).

I flew into Boston and spent the first night at her apartment. Let me tell you guys – Boston is COLD. I could never keep up with you people that live up North and actually want to leave the apartment in 30 degree weather. To keep us cozy, we made a late afternoon snack of cheesy goodness all baked in a skillet. Whether you live in cold weather or not, this meal is delicious, healthy, and a snap to make.

We meant "really cheesy"
