I usually use other's recipes as conceptual starting points of exploration. Of course, unless it was a long time since I'd ingested saturated fats I wouldn't have used butter (and it was Thursday I had Swedish meatballs in cream sauce) so I used canola oil in the bottom of the baking dish. I didn't have fresh herbs, so used dried oregano, minced onion (used it all yesterday for green peppers and sesame marinated beef strips) and garlic salt, but did have freshly peeled garlic on hand. Family members are more used to tofu than cheese, so substituted cheese with two cans of chopped tomatoes and used a layer of crushed whole wheat crackers to line the bottom of the ceramic dish to sop up the juice generated in the microwave. I think a dusting of Parmesan cheese added a nice 'touch'. It was delicious with leftover green pepper steak, but anytime now that hot summer days are waning.
