Confession.  I eat lunch alone a lot.  Because of this I'm always on the lookout for simple yet healthy things to throw together that don't require a microwave or a ton of ingredients.  When salads get boring or I can't take another packaged sandwich from Whole Foods, I've been turning to this yummy recipe from the Melting Pot (originally discovered on Ana Degenaar's foodie board).  It's not only loaded with flavor---there is something surreal about it that makes me feel like I stopped in a little cafe in Provence for a fresh and decadent bite to eat.  I'm most certain you'll feel the same.  Enjoy.
