Chef Notes: If you want to add some additional protein, you can add premade rotisserie chicken or previously meal-prepped grilled chicken to keep the meal under 30 minutes of prep time.
 Chef Notes: If you are like my mother and are not a huge fan of goat cheese, this could also be made with feta or another cheese of your liking.
